Bayreuther Studierende forschen auf den Malediven zu Plastikmüll

Selbst ein entlegenes Atoll bleibt von der Verschmutzung der Meere durch Plastikmüll nicht verschont. Studierende des Masterstudiengangs "Molekulare Ökologie" und Wissenschaftler des Lehrstuhls für Tierökologie I der Uni Bayreuth haben auf einer Insel im Indischen Ozean angespülte Plastikreste analysiert und herausgefunden, dass deren Anteil auch abseits der Zivilisation erheblich ist und zudem je nach Ort und Zeitpunkt stark schwankt.

Energy and Matter Fluxes of a Spruce Forest Ecosystem

In this book published in February 2017, scientific results obtained over the last 20 years at the FLUXNET site DE-Bay (Waldstein-Weidenbrunnen) are shown together with methods developed at the site. These include application of footprint models for data-quality analysis, coupling between the trunk space and the atmosphere, use of the Damköhler number for trace gas studies, and turbulent conditions at a forest edge. Besides the author Prof. Thomas Foken 51 scientists contributed to the volume, 12 of them active members in BayCEER and 21 alumni of ecology and environmental research at the University of Bayreuth.
