Functional ecology and conceptualization of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems
What type of training ?
|une formation diplômante, sous statut étudiant|
For who ?
|étudiant titulaire d'un diplôme français, étudiant international|
EcoSystems seeks to train scientists to understand, measure and model interactions between living organisms, including humans, and the different components of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems using concepts and tools from functional ecology.
The aim is to cultivate in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms that govern the functioning of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. The focus is on understanding interactions between organisms, populations, living communities, and their abiotic environment at different scales of space (local to global) and time (over the past six decades, to projections for the near future).
Number of ECTS credits : 60 ECTS
Language of instruction : In French
The syllabus for the EcoSystems-B2E specialization is available on the M.Sc Biology, Ecology and Evolution website (in French).
Graduates may continue with a doctoral programme and then pursue careers in public or private research and higher education institutions as scientists.
Opportunities also exist in consulting firms, local government and start-up companies.
The M.Sc 2 EcoSystems specialization is co-accredited by the University of Montpellier and Montpellier SupAgro.
