Field trip to Greece April 2014

On the island Lesbos, Greece, we study the effect of visual and olfactory salience of flowers on bee behavior in the Mediterranean ecosystem.
Cooperation partners: Aphrodite Kantsa, Theodora Petanidou, Nico Blüthgen and Christoph Stenftenagel.

In Hawaii, we worked on different projects focusing on the effects of invasive species on local ecosystems and the ecology and evolution of endemic species:

1.) Phenotypic adaptations of the endemic tree Metrosideros polymorpha on invasive flower visitors.

2.) Structure and distribution of bacterial communities colonizing flowers and leaves of Metrosideros polymorpha

3.) Niche sizes and overlap of endemic and invasive insects and their competition potential for floral resources

4.) Distribution of invasive ants along an elevational and environmental gradient

    The uni should be fit for the future / science and education an investment in the future - the new rectorate of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg under leadership of Hendrik Lehnert has presented a conclusive concept for a new university structure, which is currently being coordinated internally.
    Researchers in the Department of Geoinformatics at the PLUS have been working for several years on national and international research projects on topics sich as humanitarian management, refugee management, natural disasters as well as COVID-19. They have analysed and evaluated billions of geo-referenced social media data. The results serve stakeholders as an important basis for decision making.
    Gabriele Spilker, Professor of Empirical Research Methods at the Department of Political Science at the University of Salzburg, was awarded the Ars Docendi State Prize for excellent teaching at Austrian universities yesterday evening in Vienna. The prize is awarded in five categories each endowed with 7,000 euros. Spilker is the winner in the category "Learning outcomes examination culture and its anchoring in the course"

    historioPLUS , like so many others, has also had to adapt to the change in circumstances due to Covid-19. For this reason the current year has appeared a little later than in previous years.
    The Language Center has been active in the field of intercomprehension didactics for almost 20 years,Well-known multilingual didactics experts, came together to present the current state of research in this area.The result is the anthology "Lehr- und Lernkompetenzen für die Interkompehension. Perspektiven für die mehrsprachige Bildung (Teaching and Learning Skills for Intercomprehension. Perspectives for Multilingual Education)"Band 10 der Salzburger Reihe zur Lehrer/innen/bildung.
    Registration for the webinars with Ms MMag. Dr. Olivia Vrabl, colleagues from IT-Services and the ZFL-Team is possible at anytime.
