Ecological zoology and entomology

Through lectures as well as compulsory exercises and laboratory work, the course provides basic knowledge in terrestrial and aquatic zoology, including the animal world’s different life forms, the animals’ morphology, systematics, evolution, their adaptations to the outside world and life functions. Zoophysiology with physiological processes is treated. A key aspect is the importance of animals for, and impact on, forest ecosystems. Here, special emphasis is placed on conservation/ecological restoration and forest health in relation to biodiversity, insect infestations, and grazing damage. Methodologies for inventory and monitoring of animal populations as well as nature conservation management to benefit animals are treated.
