Environmental Biology

If you are among the people, who are up to challenges of finding innovative methods and sustainable solutions to threats that face our environment, then a masters degree in Environmental Biology provides the answer to your career development. Environmental Biology is the study of the relationship between people, other animal species and their surroundings. As a student, you will study the connection between different species with respect to their natural environment.

A masters program in Environmental Biology gives students insight into the socio-economic causes and the characteristics of natural-environmental pollution and degradation, which includes the effects to human beings, ecosystems and other living organisms. Generally, a masters degree in Environmental Biology is a two-year program, which is based on the interdisciplinary approach. In this program, students learn how to develop analytical tools and models, technologies, socio-political arrangements and economic instruments, which are important in controlling and preventing environmental degradation. The study equips students with adequate knowledge on how to sustain an environment that is friendly to life.

Some of the main aims of the program are to analyze the interactions and relationships of living organisms, study taxonomy of both plants and animals, explore how air, soil, and water affect the life of both Flora and Fauna, investigate the effects of environmental processes on production, development, and genetics, and to investigate the effects of environmental pollution and industrialization on both plants and animals. Some of the specific careers that relates to this program include Environmental analysts and Environmental Engineers.

International Masters Programme in Palaeobiology

Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg FAU
Campus Full time 2 years October 2018 Germany Nürnberg

The acute theme of global climate change and its impact on organisms and ecosystems requires a new generation of scientists. We provide theoretical concepts of macroecology and macroevolution, as well as statistical techniques and scientific programming in palaeobiology. The second pillar of this specialisation is the reconstruction of fossil environments and their local and global controls. We focus on carbonate systems, which are the result of the metabolic activity of organisms and thus reflect the interplay of the biosphere and the earth-system at large. [+]

Masters in Environmental Biology. The acute theme of global climate change and its impact on organisms and ecosystems requires a new generation of scientists.

The second pillar of this specialisation is the reconstruction of fossil environments and their local and global controls. We focus on carbonate systems, which are the result of the metabolic activity of organisms and thus reflect the interplay of the biosphere and the earth-system at large. The Masters programme consists of four semesters with 30 credit points (ECTS) each. In addition to compulsory courses, students can choose supplementary activities, including language classes or additional field excursions. The last semester is dedicated to the Masters thesis. Supplementary courses (SC) include field trips, language courses, and transferable skills. Master in Geosciences at FAU includes two fields of study: Palaeobiology – which provides theoretical framework in macroevolution, ecology, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction and statistical analysis Earth Systems Research Lab – which consists of individual fi eld- and specimen-based projects and provides students with skills such as preparation of funding applications, scientifi c writing and communication, as well as environmental and geochemical background for interdisciplinary collaborations Analytical techniques and equipment Internationally renowned stable isotope laboratory with focus on palaeoclimate and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions One-of-a-kind collection of carbonate thin sections, fossil preparation and thin section laboratory and a wide range of microscope imaging facilities Micro-computed tomography for 3D and non-invasive analysis of specimens Ultrastructural studies on...

Masters In Management Of Wildlife And Its Habitats

Université du Québec à Rimouski UQAR
Campus Full time 15 months September 2018 Canada Rimouski Lévis + 1 more

The MA in wildlife management and habitat is training in biology training scientists and professionals with a global and interdisciplinary vision that will contribute to improving the conservation and exploitation of resources. [+]

Masters in Environmental Biology. The MA in wildlife management and habitat is training in biology training scientists and professionals with a global and interdisciplinary vision that will contribute to improving the conservation and exploitation of resources. Research projects are carried out in key areas such as genetics in animal populations, adaptive biology, forest ecology, dynamics of wildlife populations and evolutionary biology. Program Structure The MA in management of wildlife and its habitats allows for a research project (27 credits memory) to deepen his knowledge in an area of ​​specialization in the field of biology. The program also helps develop the skills required for the pursuit of doctoral studies. Research areas Fish and Wildlife Population dynamics, use of the environment and trophic relationships trophic dynamics of the Canadian Arctic tundra Ecology of animal communities and studies of reproductive strategies of animals Impacts of climate change on wildlife and trophic dynamics of Arctic tundra and boreal forest Conservation of vulnerable or endangered species Ecology, physiology and behavior of birds Effect of human change and conservation of bird marine habitats Ecology of marine bivalve populations Ocean protection Analysis methods in ecology data Ecology microscopic organisms sediment Transfer of the organic material from the water column and sediment evolutionary biology Evolution of living and fossil lower vertebrates environmental stress on larval development of the fish Paléoichtyologie, paleoecology and paleoenvironmental reconstruction forest ecology Sustainable Forest Management Disturbance ecology and forest regeneration Impacts of disturbances and climate change on boreal forest History of vegetation and sedimentation...
