Course content

Biodiversity is threatened by climate change and other consequences of the growing human population. To solve this, and some of the other global challenges facing humanity, we need researchers with an in-depth understanding of how we maintain ecosystems in the face of environmental change.

Our world-class research in this area spans topics including global change ecology, biodiversity science, tropical forest conservation, palaeoecology and palynology, urban ecology, environmental pollution, and agricultural ecology, giving students on this course the opportunity to carry out cutting-edge research in their chosen area.
