A joint program of the Department of Life Sciences and the Albert Katz International School of Desert Studies

In the face of the biodiversity crisis and the threat to ecological systems and the services they provide, our new program in Ecology and Nature Conservation aims at creating a new generation of scientists, experts and field workers with a broad knowledge in the field of applicative ecology, conservation biology and evolutionary ecology.

The program provides the students with a theoretical background in ecology and evolution, with emphasize on biodiversity, community dynamics and organism-level processes combined with methodological knowledge, including statistics, mathematics, model developing and assessment procedures specific to nature conservation and management.

The program offers a Master of​ Science (M.Sc.) degree based on research thesis in one of two study tracks that overlap in their thematic background but emphasize different aspects of ecology:

- Evolutionary Ecology (E)

- Nature Conservation (N)
