Title: Pollen analysis in the brown coal seam. A research project for the Jugend forscht competition.
Source: In: Geographie heute, (1999) 171, pp. 34–37

Abstract: Even after millions of years, a pollen analysis can prove the vegetation of that time. If the fossil pollen does not come into contact with oxygen, it can be kept almost indefinitely. Due to their characteristic surface structure, the pollen can be assigned to the corresponding plants. In this way, the author of this article examined more than 10,000 pollen from a lignite seam of the Garzweiler I opencast mine to find out how the vegetation was composed in the Miocene, the time when lignite was formed. (Orig.).

Title: Doing by Learning - an alternative start to bilingual teaching.
Source: In: Geographie heute, (1999) 171, pp. 40–43

Abstract: Especially at the beginning of bilingual geography lessons, the abundance of unknown vocabulary usually causes difficulties for the students. Later they can fall back on basic knowledge and, if necessary, adopt technical terms from history, politics or biology, but this knowledge is of little help at the beginning. The present article therefore offers an everyday possibility to alleviate the starting difficulties. (Orig.).
