Master module "Behavioral biology in zoos"
The module consists of a seminar, an internship and excursion. Fundamental aspects and current issues of Zoology are taught in the seminar at the beginning based on original work, which will be presented by the students and then discussed as a group. The excursion to various zoos and a research internship in the 'Opel Zoo' serve to solidify theoretical principles.
The students acquire basic principles in the field of zoo biology (behavior research in the zoo, enrichment, husbandry, conservation aspects), as well as the application of modern techniques. They will learn methodology for the implementation of behavioural studies and how to address scientific problems while bearing in mind current concepts in the relevant literature.
