In the face of the biodiversity crisis and the threat to ecological systems and the services they provide, our 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, concervation biology and evolutionary ecology.
We offer a joint program of the Department of Life Sciences and the Albert Katz International School of Desert Studies
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 two tracks of Master of Science (M.Sc.):
✔ Evolutionary Ecology
✔ Nature Conservation
Those two tracks overlap in their thematic background but each emphasizes different aspects of ecology.
