Environmental Biology


Course Description

Interactions between plants, fungi and the environment from an evolutionary and historical perspective, with organisational levels ranging from genes to ecosystems, are explored in this programme.

You will study the fundamental life processes of plants and fungi at different organisational levels, from molecules and cells to entire plants and ecosystems. The goal of these studies is to understand how plants and fungi function in populations and ecosystems and adapt to continuously changing - often hostile - environments.

The two-year programme provides a range of possibilities for students interested in plant biology, fungal biology, natural resource management, palaeoecology, or environmental sciences in general. The main programme components are practical research training and theoretical education, but there are also possibilities for a more applied focus. Students will contribute to ongoing projects of internationally renowned university research groups or professional organisations in the public or private domain. The programme offers you considerable freedom. You may opt for a tailor-made Master plan to suit your personal interests, but you are also welcome to follow specialisation programmes Plant Biology, Fungal Biology, Ecology & Natural Resource Management, or Biomarine Sciences & Palaeoecology.
