A bachelor`s degree in a biological discipline and participation in a master study programme in a scientific discipline. The grade is based on a final written exam (100%) A "pass" for an oral presentation during the course constitutes the prerequisite for participation in the final exam.
Contents:
The module provides in-depth information about dominant sympagic, pelagic and benthic organisms (including micro-organisms) and their specific environments in the polar regions of both hemispheres. The course will also cover topics of land-sea interactions, e.g. in estuaries and shelf ecosystems. Besides presenting the current knowledge on the general biology and ecology of these organisms, special topics such as threats, population status and conservation issues of habitats for individual species are also addressed with special respect to warming and subsequent man-made changes. The course is a combination of a series of lectures and a literature seminar with oral presentations of the students.
