The aim is to qualify the student to understand, measure and model the effect of e.g. land use change or increased load of chemicals on natural and artificial ecosystems.
The project focuses on how land-use change and increased load of chemicals may affect selected ecosystems and suggest actions relating to remediation technologies and management to prevent and alleviate the ecosystem distresses caused by e.g. land-use change or chemicals.
The project could be comparison of organic vs. conventional farming. The effect of household chemicals and pesticides on urban recreational areas.
