The study provides detailed knowledge of ecological theory in several important topics, such as adaptive responses to variation in the environment, demography and population growth, population interactions, decomposition and nutrient cycles in aquatic and soil ecosystems, community ecology and conservation issues in some protected species, the ecology of agro-ecosystems and problems of landscape restoration. Methodological approaches include the experimental testing of hypotheses, the statistical and dynamic modelling of empirical and simulation data and observational studies to measure important ecological parameters in populations and communities.
Applicants for Ph.D. studies should hold a M.Sc. degree in the relevant field of study and show that they are able to undertake the study successfully. The decision is made by Admission Committee nominated by the Dean of the Faculty based on study record transcripts and personal recommendations. Selected candidates may be invited for an interview.
Additional individual applications for remaining vacant themes from the list can be negotiated throughout the year.
