International Masters Program 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 specialization 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. [+]
