CAU-303Advanced Ecosystem Analysis in Environmental Management6 ECTSPeriod P3dCAU
Objectives:In this module advanced methods of systems analysis and ecological modelling are linked with modern methods of natural resource management. Based on a multidimensional, hierarchical indicator concept, dynamic scenarios of possible social changes are model based developed. Students will develop and evaluate alternative operation options in smaller projects. The results will be used to create integrated monitoring systems that are able to measure the success of protection actions. Finally, the results will be evaluated in the context of local, regional and international environmental monitoring systems and environmental politics.

Outcomes:Students understand the structural and dynamic interaction of social targets of natural resources management and the local characteristics of an ecosystem. Participants are able to demonstrate different scenarios of social measures and to model the potential ecological reactions. They are also able to evaluate the meaning of the analysis in social context.
