Summary

 

Ecology and Evolution - LIFE40007

Aims

The impact of our species' activities on the world's ecosystems poses an existential threat to human civilisation. It is critical that biological scientists understand the processes by which the diversity of life on earth has arisen, interacts with its environment, and is maintained, so that we can critically evaluate environmental policy. This module aims to explore how the planet's biological diversity is organised by ecological processes into ecosystems, communities, and populations. We also aim to develop your skills in statistics, experimental design, and practical field-work, and to continue to develop your writing skills.
