Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

    Major overview


    Have you ever wondered about the history of life on Earth? When and where did a species originate? How did it evolve? What controls where a species is found and how abundant it is? Are birds really dinosaurs?

    Ecology and Evolutionary Biology seeks to answer such questions and its applications make significant contributions to society.

    This major combines disciplines from genetics through to ecosystem science to give you a deep understanding of the evolutionary basis of ecosystems, habitats and biodiversity, and the relationships between species and their environments.

    In this major you can specialise in Ecology, Conservation Ecology, or Evolution and Biodiversity.
