Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Field exercises in biology and ecology aims to acquaint students with organisms and habitats of selected ecosystems (forest, wetland, meadow, fields, pond, dam, river) and the specific examples, in the discharge of their duties, the acquainted with the functions of ecosystems and to understand that disruption of one component system can lead to the collapse of the entire system. In addition, students at specific locations acquainted with important natural features and the selected problems, whether it is issues of biodiversity.

Summary

Terénní cvičení z biologie a ekologie má za cíl seznámit studenty s organismy a biotopy vybraných ekosystémů (les, mokřad, louka, pole, rybník, přehrada, řeka) a na konkrétních příkladech, v rámci plnění úloh, je seznámit s funkcí ekosystémů a pochopit, že narušení jedné složky systému může vést ke zhroucení celého systému. Dále se studenti na konkrétních lokalitách seznámí s významnými přírodními prvky a vybranými problémy, ať už se jedná o problematiku biodiverzity, vlivu lidské činnosti na utváření krajiny nebo znečištění životního prostředí.

Subject syllabus:

Field Course is focused on practical experiences, biological and ecological research methods and evaluating the results. Field works are organized in post-industrial landscape, respectively in post-mining landscape. The practice is carried out by sub-field work from topics as organisms, populations and their environment, diversity and community structure and interaction between organisms.
