ES 310 - Change of Ecosystems as a Result of Long-Term Human Activities in Southwest Germany and the Swiss Alps
Students will be introduced to the natural history, cultural history, ecology, and management of different ecosystems in south west Germany and the Swiss Alps. This course will teach that current ecosystems are a result of the interaction between natural and antropogenic factors on various scales in time and space. In some examples of ecosystems students will learn to recognize and analyse the benefits and problems created by longterm human activities. This course includes several one-day excursions, field trainings and a two-day field study trip to the Swiss Alps.
