Objectives:This module focuses on structure and function of water ecosystems and wetlands and analysis of direct interaction between ecosystem with specific importance for nature and resource conservation. Special attention will be given to the reactions of biocenosis to anthropogenic environmental changes. Students will organise and conduct lab projects in groups, as well as participate in excursions. Reports about data management, analysis and presentation method mark the end of each teaching unit.

Outcomes:Students are able to measure principle ecological processes (e.g. Flood dynamics, sedimentation, primary production, etc.) within ecosystems and to recognize the triggering biotic and abiotic structures. They are able to evaluate the possibilities, limits and informative value of field data for ecosystem conservation and management.
