Ecological Modelling and GIS

WS 2009/2010

1. GIS (Geographische InformationsSysteme) (Lecture)
Principles of geodetics; georeferencing; data types, -import and -management; methods
of data manipulation and analysis (aggregation, (re)classification, interpolation, buffers,
overlays, network analysis, image analysis; remote sensing techniques; practical
exercises with GIS and GPS, explained under consideration of applications in (organic)
farm management and precision farming.

2. Ecological Modelling and GIS
Introduction to common mathematical concepts used in ecology; basic steps of
modelling (conceptual modelling, translation of ecological knowledge into mathematical
concepts, implementation, verification; concepts of simulation, specific methods
(nonlinear parameter estimation, sensitvity analysis); introduction to modelling and
simulation packages; modelling of important ecological processes: Transport, nutrient
cycles, dynamics of soilwater, growth, population dynamics
