Master’s (12 to 36 months) and Doctorate (24 to 54 months)

The program, which is internationally renowned and has a wide range of dynamic exchange and cooperation agreements, focuses on fundamental areas of population ecology and community ecology using comparative or experimental field studies and theoretical studies. The research into biodiversity covers a wide range of taxonomic groups of land and marine organisms and includes inventories, the production of field guides, genetic diversity studies and the conservation, handling and sustainable use of such organisms. Applied research focuses on, among other things, biological conservation, recovery of degraded areas, agroecosystems, parasitic diseases, ethnobiology (including ethnopharmacology) and forensic entomology.
