Terrarienhaltung in der Schule. Der Einsatz lebender by Christina Täubert

By Christina Täubert

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Biologie - Didaktik, be aware: 1,0, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Bildungsplänen sowie den Rahmenrichtlinien für das Fach Biologie ist zu entnehmen, dass ein wichtiges Erziehungsziel die Vermittlung von Umweltbewusstsein darstellt. Die Schüler sollen sich infolge der Erschließung von ökologischen Zusammenhängen als einen abhängigen Teil der Natur begreifen. Gerade in Zeiten eines zunehmenden Artenaussterbens nimmt die Förderung eines verantwortungsbewussten und schützenden Verhaltens bei den Heranwachsenden einen besonderen Stellenwert ein. [...] Um diese Erziehungsziele zu erreichen, genügt es jedoch nicht, allein die kognitive Ebene anzusprechen. Vielmehr müssen auch die Emotionalität und das ästhetische Erleben von Natur Berücksichtigung finden. In diesem Sinne wird die originale Begegnung mit der Natur als ein wichtiger Schritt für die Entwicklung einer schützenden und naturverbundenen Haltung gesehen. [...] Hervorzuheben ist [...] die Haltung und die damit verbundene Pflege von Tieren an Schulen, da neben den grundsätzlichen Vorteilen des Einsatzes von lebenden Organismen noch weitere Vorzüge entstehen. [...] In Anbetracht der zahlreichen Vorteile erscheint eine schuleigene Tierhaltung mit Tieren der unterschiedlichsten Klassen und Stämme geradezu als logische Konsequenz. Die Praxis widerspricht dagegen dieser Annahme. Den wenigen Untersuchungen der letzten 50 Jahre ist zu entnehmen, dass nur knapp über 50% der Schulen in Deutschland lebende Organismen halten. [...] Die Ergebnisse von Anette Bull machen deutlich, dass auch heute noch bevorzugt Pflanzen als lebende Organismen gehalten werden, und wenn es doch Tiere an den Schulen gibt, handelt es sich dabei meist um Fische und Kleinsäuger. Dass die Haltung anderer Tierarten genauso leicht zu organisieren ist, [...] soll die vorliegende Arbeit zeigen. [...] Für Anfänger im Bereich der Haltung und Pflege von Tieren liefert der zweite Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit wichtige Hinweise und Informationen hinsichtlich den gesetzlichen Rahmenbedingungen, den Kriterien für die richtige Artenauswahl, den technischen Voraussetzungen an einer Schule und der service provider der Pflegemaßnahmen sowie des Unterrichtseinsatzes der Tiere. Im Anschluss daran werden zwei konkrete Arten, der Kongo-Rosenkäfer und die Indische Stabschrecke als Beispiele für die Haltung von Terrarientieren vorgestellt. [...] Um die Lehrerschaft für die Tierhaltung zu motivieren, sind am Ende dieses Beitrages Arbeitsaufträge für die Schüler und dazugehörige Erwartungsbilder für die Lehrer beigefügt, [...]

Quantitative Graph Theory: Mathematical Foundations and by Matthias Dehmer,Frank Emmert-Streib

By Matthias Dehmer,Frank Emmert-Streib

The first e-book committed solely to quantitative graph theory, Quantitative Graph conception: Mathematical Foundations and purposes presents and demonstrates current and novel equipment for reading graphs quantitatively. Incorporating interdisciplinary wisdom from graph concept, details concept, size conception, and statistical innovations, this publication covers a variety of quantitative-graph theoretical options and techniques, together with these referring to genuine and random graphs such as:

  • Comparative ways (graph similarity or distance)
  • Graph measures to represent graphs quantitatively
  • Applications of graph measures in social community research and different disciplines
  • Metrical homes of graphs and measures
  • Mathematical houses of quantitative tools or measures in graph theory
  • Network complexity measures and different topological indices
  • Quantitative ways to graphs utilizing laptop studying (e.g., clustering)
  • Graph measures and statistics
  • Information-theoretic the way to study graphs quantitatively (e.g., entropy)

Through its large insurance, Quantitative Graph conception: Mathematical Foundations and functions fills a niche within the modern literature of discrete and utilized arithmetic, laptop technological know-how, platforms biology, and similar disciplines. it truly is meant for researchers in addition to graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars within the fields of arithmetic, desktop technological know-how, mathematical chemistry, cheminformatics, physics, bioinformatics, and platforms biology.

Organized Multienzyme Systems: Catalytic Properties by Welch,G. Rickey Welch

By Welch,G. Rickey Welch

equipped Multienzyme structures: Catalytic houses describes the kinetic and catalytic houses of geared up enzyme structures. This publication consists of 9 chapters that in particular disguise either immobilized and of course happening platforms.
The first chapters study the character and serve as of enzyme association within the mitochondrion, in addition to the structural/functional coupling of the elements in energy-transducing membrane structures. those issues are through discussions on ""dynamic compartmentation"" in soluble multienzyme platforms; the allosteric enzyme structures; and allosterism in reversibly adsorptive enzyme structures. different chapters discover version reports with particular immobilized multienzyme sequences, as regards the research of microenvironmental results, and the mathematical exposition at the kinetic research of multienzyme structures in homogeneous answer. The final chapters current a few theoretical and experimental reviews at the habit of immobilized platforms. those chapters additionally offer a speculative integrative view of the type of sensible coherence that could be operative in equipped states in vivo.
This publication is of serious worth to telephone biologists, biochemists, and enzyme scientists and researchers.

The Comparative Approach in Evolutionary Anthropology and by Charles L. Nunn

By Charles L. Nunn

Comparison is key to evolutionary anthropology. whilst scientists examine chimpanzee cognition, for instance, they examine chimp functionality on cognitive projects to the functionality of human teenagers at the similar projects. And whilst new fossils are discovered, akin to these of the tiny people of Flores, scientists examine those continues to be to different fossils and modern people. comparability offers the way to draw common inferences in regards to the evolution of characteristics and consequently has lengthy been the cornerstone of efforts to appreciate organic and cultural variety. person stories of fossilized is still, residing species, or human populations are the fundamental devices of study in a comparative research; bringing those parts right into a broader comparative framework permits the puzzle items to fall into position, making a technique of checking out adaptive hypotheses and producing new ones.

 

With this ebook, Charles L. Nunn intends to make sure that evolutionary anthropologists and organismal biologists have the instruments to gain the possibility of comparative learn. Nunn offers a wide-ranging research of the comparative foundations of evolutionary anthropology in previous and current learn, together with reviews of animal habit, biodiversity, linguistic evolution, allometry, and cross-cultural version. He additionally issues tips on how to the long run, exploring the hot phylogeny-based comparative methods and delivering a how-to handbook for scientists who desire to include those new equipment into their research.
