743419-1 Forest ecology and forestry:
Students are able to understand the difficulties of managing forest ecosystems in an alpine environment, where multiple limitations (legal, economic, ecological) have to be considered. 

743419-2 Agroecology: Students gain insight into the variety of processes and problems that occur in agroecosystems.

743419-3 Aquatic ecology (groundwater):Students get an insight into groundwater problems caused by overuse and pollution as well as the implementation of rehabilitation strategies on the basis of case studies.

743419-4 Aquatic ecology (lakes): Students get an insight into human pressures on lakes as well as the implementation of different restoration measures on the basis of case studies

743419-1 Forest ecology and forestry:
In the exkursion the timber supply chain from the harvest in Tyrolean mountain forest to the timber procession in an industrial plant and the efficient use of timber  is shown.  The importance and limitations of renewable primary production and renewable energy and the need for an efficient use of forest resources is dicussed. 

743419-2 Agroecology: During a field trip, current scientific issues in the fields of climate change and biodiversity in the context of agroecosystems will be presented. This offers direct interactions with practitioners to learn about their motivations and the framework of production possibilities.

743419-4 Aquatic ecology (groundwater): Students analyze case studies including the overuse, pollution, remediation and protection of groundwater systems. The information is obtained from different sources including publications, reports, film material and web-based data. At the end of the semester, the students present and discuss the individual case studies.

743419-4 Aquatic ecology (lakes): Students analyze case studies including pollution, eutrophication, and lake restoration. The information is obtained from different sources including publications, reports, film material and web-based data. At the end of the semester, the students present and discuss the individual case studies.
