Ecologia lacustre (3103G00117)

We study the ecological characteristics of lentic water systems: lakes, lagoons and marshes. The study of the different lentic environments is approached from a functional point of view. We analyse everything from the physical and chemical characteristics that determine the functioning of the system, to the different organisms included init and their function in the structure of the system. We also look at the way the most important aquatic ecosystems, with a particular focus on Mediterranean systems.

Ecologia aplicada (3103G00120)

We study the ecological functioning of ecosystems that have been forced, altered or managed by human activity. We analyse ecosystems which are of interest to people for various reasons, from exploiting natural resources, preventing risks, control of plagues, generating waste and pollution, conservation and the restoration of species and habitats. Most of the analysis is based on case studies, where we can look in greater detail at aspects related to ecological functioning.
