About the Course

What makes some species vulnerable to extinction while others rapidly invade new regions? How sensitive are different ecosystems to disturbance? In this course you will learn about processes acting at individual, population and ecosystem levels. You will learn to build simple computer models to assess the extinction risk of a species under different scenarios. Population genetics and other molecular methods are pivotal tools in modern ecology – in this class you will gain basic skills within these fields. Important practical segments of the course are given at the research stations Kristineberg and Tjärnö.

In addition to the courses listed in the entry requirements we recommend that you have taken Biostatistics and experimental design (BIO172/173) and Marine Biodiversity (BIO267).
