This master's degree is addressed to students interested in the processes involved in the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems and the options for mitigating their future deterioration in a context of global environmental change, and also to students interested in the management and conservation of biological natural resources (flora and fauna).
The master's degree takes up one academic year (60 ECTS) and is divided into two specialisations: TerrestrialEcology and Management and Diversity of Fauna and Flora (marine and terrestrial).
The subjects that are common to both specialisations aim to provide methodological tools (modelling, statistics and geographical information systems). In the TerrestrialEcology specialisation there are modules on preparing for research (based on set reading texts) and designing experiments and measuring techniques (based on research visits and stays). In the Management and Diversity of Fauna and Flora specialisation there are modules on management and applications of animal diversity and evolution and analysis of the landscape (plants).
