Subject context 2015-16

Modelling Ecological Systems is a training course in the Supplementary Compulsory module type that is taught in the 3rd year (sixth semester) Grade Biology. Its main objective is to understand the functioning of ecological systems, with special emphasis on biogeochemical cycles. This subject is related to other subjects such as ecology, oceanography, geology and plant physiology, and it provides a framework for facilitating student approach to other areas as soil science, toxicology or agrobiology. Knowledge of the philosophy and practice of modeling will be an invaluable tool during later courses and along student's professional careers.


This subject will be especially interesting for training future biologists for three reasons. (1) It provides fundamental knowledge on nutrient cycling, carbon and water. (2) It promotes a systemic vision of ecosystems, landscapes and the planet. (3) It provides practical information on models and modeling.

Results of learning (formative objectives)


Specific objectives provided by the teaching staff for the course 2015-16

1. Identify the main elements that characterize the main systems and models in ecology.

2. Correctly apply analysis techniques and layout of the structure and relationships between system components.

3. Study the main biogeochemical cycles and their processes, and identify alterations causing current environmental problems.

4. Learn the main analysis techniques for the study of biogeochemical processes.

5. Gain experience in working in a biogeochemistry laboratory, including planning and security measures.

6. Apply acquired knowledge and skills by developing simple ecosystem models, and study specific environmental problems, simulating management measures.

7. Get introduced to the main simulation models for solving environmental problems.

Evaluation Tools and Criteria 2015-16

Attendance at theoretical sessions is not mandatory. However, evaluable written tests will be performed during regular classes. Attendance at tutorials and practical classes is compulsory and will be evaluated during delivery. Grades will not be saved for later academic years except for lab and computer reports. A grade higher than 4 in the final test will be needed to pass the course.
