Welcome – this is Juliane Filser’s Ecology Blog! It has been set up to display interesting facts, comments and thoughts related to ecology, facts going beyond the department’s homepage (see https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/uft-oekologie/).
Items can comprise a lot of different things, among them both shocking and exciting publications, job announcements, pictures, statistical data or political decisions and comments on these – and also surprises, like in the first video uploaded, possibly even poems or graffiti…
Most important, however, this is also a forum for ecology students. Selected examples of the best contributions in lectures, seminars and practical courses may show up here, including also some fun such as the weirdest answers in exams – of course anonymized.
Last not least, this is also an invitation to those concerned for nature: please feel free to comment or supplement any contributions, and contact us whenever you come across something that you consider worthwhile presenting here!
The most recent contributions will always be under “Latest news”; older ones will be moved to the other categories.
Looking forward to YOUR input, and best regards!
