KurzbeschreibungThe field course "Microbial ecology" enables students to learn a number of state of the art methods which are commonly used to study microbial structures and functions in natural habitats. The course includes lectures, field trips, training in the laboratory and a presentation of the data. The focus will be on habitats such as microbial mats, alpine wetlands and stratified lakes.
LernzielCharacterization of microbial structures and functions in natural habitats by using state of the art molecular, chemical and physical tools.
InhaltThe field course is taught in an alpine research station in Val Piora (TI). The methods to be addressed include flux measurements, microsensors , determination of depth profiles, microbiological techniques, etc. The students will also learn to take samples in aquatic and terrestrial systems.
SkriptHandouts will be available in the course.
