Past Landscapes presents theoretical and practical attempts of scholars and scientists, who were and are active within the Kiel Graduate School "Human Development in Landscapes" (GSHDL), in order to disentangle a wide scope of research efforts on past landscapes. Landscapes are understood as products of human-environmental interaction. At the same time, they are arenas, in which societal and cultural activities as well as receptions of environments and human developments take place. Thus, environmental processes are interwoven into human constraints and advances.This book presents theories, concepts, approaches and case studies dealing with human development in landscapes. On the one hand, it becomes evident that only an interdisciplinary approach can cover the manifold aspects of the topic. On the other hand, this also implies that the very different approaches cannot be reduced to a simplistic uniform definition of landscape. This shortcoming proves nevertheless to be an important strength. The umbrella term 'landscape' proves to be highly stimulating for a large variety of different approaches.The first part of our book deals with a number of theories and concepts, the second part is concerned with approaches to landscapes, whereas the third part introduces case studies for human development in landscapes. As intended by the GSHDL, the reader might follow our approach to delve into the multi-faceted theories, concepts and practices on past landscapes: from events, processes and structures in environmental and produced spaces to theories, concepts and practices concerning past societies.ContentsPrefacePast Landscapes: The Dynamics of Interaction between Society, Environment, and CultureAnnette Haug, Lutz Käppel, and Johannes MüllerIntroductionFrom Theories, Concepts and Practices on Human Development in LandscapesAnnette Haug and Johannes MüllerLandscape and the GSHDL 2007-2017: Ten Years of ResearchJohannes MüllerI: Past Landscapes - Theories and ConceptsThe Disentanglement of Landscapes: Remarks on Concepts of Socio-Environmental Research and Landscape ArchaeologyJohannes MüllerOn Melting Grounds: Theories of the LandscapeAntonia DavidovicRitual and Landscape: Theoretical ConsiderationsV.P.J.

Benthic foraminifera and environmental change

The Baltic Sea ecosystem undergoes a high environmental variability due to the occasional ventilation of deep water by highly saline Kattegat water, which enters the Baltic through the narrow and shallow Danish Straits. During the past two decades, the frequency of major inflows decreased and led to extended periods of stagnation with reduced deep-water oxygenation. At the same time, a growing economy caused a significant anthropogenic pollution in the area. The anthropogenic influx of different pollutants caused eutrophication, oxygen depletion and left elevated levels of trace metals in the sediments. These environmental changes are seen today at all trophic levels of living organisms and affected even one of the smallest inhabitants of the Baltic Sea: benthic foraminifera. In this thesis, foraminifera are evaluated as proxies of recent environmental change of both natural and anthropogenic origin in two shallow fjords of the Kiel Bight (SW Baltic Sea).

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Nature Protection, Landscape Conservation, grade: 1,3, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (Institut für Natur- und Ressourcenschutz Abteilung Landschaftsökologie), course: Environmental Management, Umweltmanagement, language: English, abstract: The stock of the European brown hare (Lepus europaeus PALLAS, 1778) is declining since decades, in Germany as well as in other European countries.At the same time,the occurrence of European brown hares is a new phenomenon in urban areas. Hence,Lichtenberg, a city district of Berlin, the capital of Germany, even assumed a special responsibility for its new inhabitants.Whereas a method for the quantification of this common game species in agricultural areas already exists, a new quantification method for city habitats is required in order to overcome several limitations. The aim of this master thesis is to deliver a suitable quantification method for Lepus europaeus, which can be applied by nature conservation authorities in future.By means of a strong LED torchlight and a bike, 153.74 ha of green area, which is usually scattered between residential buildings, were investigated in the style of the previous "spotlight taxation". These investigated areas belong to five different tracks. Each trackwas investigated three times in the late evening hours in the spring period from 8th of March until the 25th of April 2011. Within this time 37 sightings of hares have been made. Summing up the five maximum values from each of the 3 countings, one could assume that at least 17 hares live within the illuminated area. Considering the territorial behaviour, even a minimum number of 19 hares is probable. If additionally only suitable tracks are taken into account, a density of 16.98 hares/100 ha can be calculated - asurprisingly high value compared to the results of spotlight counting in surrounding federal states, where the agricultural landscape, and therefore the natural habitat of Lepus europaeus, is more prevalent. However, a direct comparison to the hare densities inthe open landscape, which are obtained by means of different methods is incorrect. Nevertheless, if the proposed aspects for a future implementation will be taken into consideration in the long run, it is a realisable method for the quantification of urban hare populations. Moreover, the interested public can participate on this scientific approach as well. Then, cost reduction and the rising awareness for wild animals in the public are positive side-effects.

Maritime canals dissolve natural barriers to the dispersal of marine organisms, thus providing novel opportunities for natural dispersal, as well as for shipping-mediated transport. The introduction of alien species has proved to be one of the most profound and damaging of anthropogenic deeds - with both ecological and economic costs. This book is the first to assess the impacts of the world’s three principal maritime canals – the Kiel, the Panama, the Suez – as invasion corridors for alien biota. These three canals differ in their hydrological regimes, the types of biotas they connect, and in their permeability to invasions. Dr. Stephan Gollasch was involved in the first European ship sampling programme on ballast water, tank sediments and ship hull fouling (1992-1996). His PhD is world-wide the first thesis based on ballast water sampling. In addition to laboratory and desk studies he spent more than 125 days at sea during several biological surveys and joint ships on their voyages through the Kiel and Suez Canals. Due to the international aspect of biological invasions Dr. Gollasch became a member of several international working groups: International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES); International Maritime Organization (IMO), and the Baltic Marine Biologists (BMB). As an independent consultant he is today involved projects related to biological invasions (e.g. ballast water treatment, ship sampling, risk assessment). Recently he was involved in the development of risk assessments and ballast water management scenarios for the European Atlantic coast, North, Baltic, Caspian and Mediterranean Seas. Dr. Bella Galil is a Senior Research Scientist at the National Institute of Oceanography, Israel. Her main research interests are the anthropogenic changes occurring in the Levantine marine biota, and the impact of alien species on the Mediterranean ecosystem. She has conducted numerous studies and surveys off the Israeli coast monitoring the benthic biota from the intertidal to the bathyal. She co-chairs the scientific committee of marine ecosystems of the International Commission for Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean (CIESM), and is a member of the Invasive Species Scientific Committee, IUCN. Galil published over 130 papers in scientific journals and co-edited a volume of the 'CIESM Atlas of Exotic species in the Mediterranean'. Recently she coordinated the drafting of Guidelines for controlling the vectors of introduction into the Mediterranean of non-indigenous species and invasive marine species for the UNEP Mediterranean Action Plan Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas RAC/SPA. Dr. Andrew Cohen is the Director of the Biological Invasions Program at the San Francisco Estuary Institute in Oakland, California. His research has focused on the extent, impacts and vectors of aquatic invasions. He has organized and led rapid assessment surveys for exotic marine species in various localities including one at both ends of the Panama Canal. He helped write California's first ballast water law in 1999, and recently helped develop ballast water discharge standards for the state that seem likely to be enacted this year. He also drafted a petition from the research community that led to a U.S. ban on importing the 'Killer Seaweed' Caulerpa taxifolia, and provided technical assistance to a recently successful lawsuit that will force ballast water discharges into U.S. waters to be regulated as biological pollutants under the U.S. Clean Water Act. For his work he has received a Pew Marine Conservation Fellowship and the San Francisco BayKeeper's Environmental Achievement Award.

This publication is the result of a symposium held in 2004 at the Kiel Walther Schücking Institute for International Law on the occasion of its 90th anniversary. In 2000 the International Law Commission of the United Nations in its preliminary study on dangers associated with conflicts between various normative subsystems of international law stated that the fragmentation of international law could endanger the stability as well as the consistency of international law and its comprehensive nature. It is against this background that this volume contains an in-depth analysis as to whether divergent trends have emerged, and if so to what extent, with regard to the sources of international law, its subjects, questions of State responsibility and dispute settlement with regard to the law of the sea, international humanitarian and international criminal law, human rights, international environmental law and international economic law. Besides, the book also addresses the question whether, and if so which, rules have developed to cope with conflicts between the various subsystems just mentioned. It therefore constitutes an essential contribution to the ongoing and crucial debate on the fragmentation of modern public international law.

Ocean acidification is a long-term and encroaching environmental problem. Ocean acidification might impair marine biodiversity to large extent. The book deals with this global problem both from a scientific and a sustainability perspective. Sustainability perspective rests both on environmental ethics and intergenerational justice. Case studies specify risk and possible loss and damages being caused by ocean acidification. Authors argue that there is urgent need to stop ocean acidification as soon as possible. Curbing CO2-emissions by fast and agressive mitigation policies is crucial. The book has resulted from the BIOACID research project being performed at Christian Albrechts University Kiel.
