About the programme
Applied Ecology is a subfield within ecology, which applies the science of ecology to real world questions. This includes the application of ecological concepts to environmental problem solving, policy and management including the sustainable production, use and management of biological resources (mainly wildlife, fish, forest. cultivated plants and livestock). ‘Applied’ in the present study program also refers to the ability to carry to completion a limited piece of research. We aim to train students to be able to plan, conduct, analyze and present results from scientific studies.
The management of our ecosystems to halt the loss of biodiversity and mitigate climate change while maintaining human welfare is a major task regionally, nationally and internationally. In the present program we focus on the biological processes, management and the scientific tools needed to understand ecosystems and how they can be managed in a sustainable manner. We aim at providing the competence needed among the practitioners in education, management and research in these areas.
