Welcome in the working group Evolutionary Zoology

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des Bildes

We are working on different topics in the field of evolutionary zoology, with invertebrates (butterflies) and vertebrates (birds), in Europe and parts of East Africa. We are analyzing responses and adaptation mechanisms of species on environmental changes, such as ecosystem-, landscape- and climate changes. We consider different spatial and temporal scales. We are working with species communities, population structures, and intraspecific proxis.

    The 6th annual conference on 6.migration and integration research in Austria took place from the 16 to 18 September at the der University of Salzburg – partly in person, partly online. A resolution for the reception of refugees from Moria was approved.
    As part of its profile „Räume und Identitäten (Spaces and Identities)“ the third annual conference was held on the 30th January 2020 at the Department of Public, International and European Law at the University of Salzburg. The conference with the title „Lebensende in Institutionen ( End of Life in Institutions)" raised a controversial social issue.
    Applications for two dissertation prizes (worth 2,000 euros each) can be made until the 31st October.
    This semester from the 28.09.2020 personal registration for USI courses will not be possible in order to avoid unnecessary crowds of people.

    Important dates and information on registering for courses at the Language Centre in Winter Semester 2020/21
    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.

    During the time of Corona, in particular, it became clear just how important it is to support students digitally in their every day university life. The project „On Track“ – stay on track combines digital and social worlds. It is starting at the right time!
