MRes in Tropical Forest Ecology

This unique tropical forest ecology course will enable students to gain a thorough understanding of a range of theoretical and practical aspects of tropical forest ecology, from basic taxonomy to hydrology, biogeochemistry, meteorology and community ecology. The course incorporates substantial field training in a tropical research station, ensuring students are equally well prepared for a career in research or to pursue a PhD in a related field.

This MRes in Tropical Forest Ecology is offered as a 12-month full-time programme, or a two-year part time option. The objective of the course is to enable students to gain substantial field-oriented research skills in a tropical forest environment. Students are initially taught over three months in the lecture theatre, this is followed by a three-week field skills course in Malaysia, before they progress on to the 30-week research project on some aspect of tropical forest ecology.

The course will provide students with high-level research training in the latest developments in tropical forest ecology, focussing on the interactions between physical and biological processes in these complex ecosystems.
