In the Introduction to Ecology lecture, students have always been able to express wishes on which topics are to be treated in the lecture. In Winter Semester 2018/19, for the first time, they had the opportunity to read up on their favourite topic independently and present them in class. Here, some of the best presentations made by the student’s are featured (all in German language).
