Summary

 

Ecology and Evolution - LS1-EE

Aims

  • To understand the processes by which the diversity of life on earth has arisen and is maintained
  • To recognize the different processes underpinning evolutionary change, including genetic mutation, drift, and natural selection.
  • To explore how the planet’s biological diversity is organized by ecological processes into ecosystems, communities, and populations, and to appreciate the interactions that bind and define these.
  • To understand the roles of observation, experimentation, and theory in building our knowledge base about the natural world.

Ecology - LIFE95007

Aims

This course will expose students to the broad diversity of approaches and topics in modern ecology. Major aims are to understand: (a) key ecological issues at different organisational levels: from individuals and populations to communities and ecosystems; (b) the importance of evolutionary and taxonomic insights in ecology; (c) the range of theories that explain how diversity is maintained.
