Evolutionary dynamics and managment applications


Biodiversity, evolution and conservation are of growing importance due to climate change, extinction, and habitat destruction. This unit provides a broad research training in ecology, evolution and conservation. It is taught by active researchers throughout the department that use their own research as model systems to illustrate the fundamental scientific principles that underpin the study topics. We concentrate on inter-disciplinary approaches and current research tools in these disciplines. Thus providing a rigorous training and unparalleled opportunities across the full breadth of pure and applied research in evolutionary, ecological, and conservation science. Most of this course is taught in English.
