MRes in Biodiversity, Evolution & Conservation

BEC Logo

Biodiversity is vital for providing food, fuel, clean water and other ecosystem services that our wellbeing depends upon. However, factors such as habitat loss and climate change are resulting in widespread loss of diversity and challenging the heath and persistence of ecosystems.

This MRes provides training in scientific approaches to studying and preserving biodiversity. The research led programme covers both basic research on the evolutionary and ecological processes that produced our present biodiversity, and applied research on how to preserve this biodiversity in the future.
