The Master in Applied Ecology program is unique as it combines ecological theory and scientific methods with matters of administrative law.
Master in Applied Ecology program focuses on the sustainable use of resources through the proper implementation of various measures. We examine the effects of human intervention in nature and the measures we can take to reduce any negative influence. We put an emphasis on ecological and scientific methods through the use of new technology and statistical methods.
Applied Ecology is a subfield within ecology, which puts the science of ecology into practical use. 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. They train students to be able to plan, conduct, analyze, and present results from scientific studies.
The management of our ecosystems in a way that halts the loss of biodiversity and mitigates climate change while maintaining human welfare is a major task regionally, nationally, and internationally. In the present program, we focus on the biological processes, the management, and the scientific tools needed to understand ecosystems and how they can be managed in a sustainable manner. They aim at providing the competence needed among the practitioners in education, management, and research in these areas.
