Remember, knowledge is the key to success! The specialization presents a broad theoretical and conceptual frameworks as well as methods that apply in different types of ecosystems. Northern terrestrial ecosystems are emphasized, but for analytic purposes examples will also be drawn from other regions and subject fields, such as marine and freshwater ecosystems. Students will acquire initial training in both basic and/or applied ecosystem research that could be continued in PhD projects, as well as competence on monitoring and management of ecosystems.
