Do.: 08:00-10:00, S 36 (NW I)

Steven Higgins

Lecture, 2 ECTS

Starting date: 18 April 2024

Learning Objective (Module B8): The module’s aim is to teach students about the drivers that influence earth’s vegetation distribution as well as to communicate the role of terrestrial vegetation in earth’s ecosystems. Students who successfully participate in this course will be able to critically assess and interpret dynamic vegetation models (DGVMs).

Course Content: The Lecture focuses on the most important ecological processes regarding terrestrial vegetation. The lecture stresses that understanding vegetation dynamics and distribution requires knowledge of biophysical laws and knowledge of the evolutionary history of individual ecosystems. Major topics include photosynthesis, respiration, allocation, birth, death, fire, herbivory and ecosystem assembly.
