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 contribute new knowledge in the field.How to apply
Because of the research-intensive nature of this course, we ask you to include a short supporting statement with your application. This should explain how your interests and experience relate to the ecology and environment research we do in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, including which particular supervisors or research groups you would be most interested in working with.
