You will learn about the mechanisms that are involved in the evolution of new plant species and the factors that control plant diversity and the distribution of plant species. You will come to understand the way in which mating systems and population structure influence gene flow and genetic diversity in plants. You will learn how plants interact with other organisms and their ability to adapt to environmental change. At the same time, you will gain practical experience of ecological and systematic methodology.
Special features of the programme:
* Close connections to research in a international environment
* Integration of theoretical analyses with strong training of laboratory skills
* Freedom to create your own study programme and specialisation
The study programme has a clear focus on biodiversity and conservation biology. It provides a foundation for doctoral studies in plant ecology and systematics, as well as for a diverse range of other careers for plant biologists within the public sector, forestry and agricultural organisations, ecological and conservation consultancy, plant breeding and education.
Compulsory courses: Plant Ecology, Plant Evolution and Diversity and a Masters degree project (30-60 ECTS).
Electives: Plant Systematics, Mosses, Lichens, Fungi: Biodiversity and Conservation, Population and Community Ecology, Soil Ecology, Conservation Biology, Molecular Ecology and Evolution, Genetic Analysis, Bioinformatics and Sequence Analysis, Floristics Intermediate Course, Mountain Plant Ecology, Global Ecosystem Processes, Plant Biology, Nature Conservation, The Scientific Method.
Most courses are full time studies, and you usually take only one course at a time. The courses are typically teaching intensive, with lectures, seminars, excursions as well as theoretical and practical exercises. You are expected to spend about 40 hours per week on studies, self-studies included.
Normally you take two courses of 15 credits per term, i.e. a total of 60 credits per year.
A Bachelor´s degree including 90 HEC in Biology of which at least Cell Biology, Genetics and Microbiology 15 HEC, Ecology 15 HEC, Botany 15 HEC and Zoology 15 HEC. In addition 5 HEC in Statistics.
