    Description The course builds for courses in Ecology and Experimental Ecology. We will discuss both ecological and evolutionary explanation of plant invasions and review recent theory and practical applications for their control. The topic will also be highlighted in the context of future climate change conditions.
    Training objectives Students have a conceptual understanding of the ecological and evolutionary processes and mechanisms underlying plant invasions. They are familiar with practical examples of plant invasions, especially also in Europe and Switzerland, know their introduction history, their ecological and economic impact, and practical measures for prevention, containment and control.
