Course content

Our MRes in Tropical Forest Ecology provides high-level research training, covering the latest developments in the field.

The course is the only postgraduate degree in the UK to solely focus on tropical forest ecology, while also covering the physical and biological aspects of the forest ecosystem. There is an emphasis on understanding the linkages between these two components.

This degree is embedded within the

Grand Challenges in Ecosystems and the Environment Initiative

which promotes interdisciplinary research and partnerships, bringing together natural scientists, engineers, mathematicians, medics, economists and social scientists.

The course consists of class-based teaching, field work and a major research project.

During field work you will work collaboratively with researchers, directly embedding you in an active global network.
