The sustainable use of natural resources is one of the key issues of the 21st century. The M.Sc. Forest Ecology and Management focuses on the sustainable management of forested landscapes. In a world, where both the environmental conditions as well as the aspirations of society are highly dynamic, our environment cannot be managed according to fixed recipes. Adaptive management, a fundamental concept of ecosystem management, addresses this uncertainty, and provides the framework for the content of this M.Sc. course. The study programme aims at:
- an understanding and analysis of the direct and indirect effects of mankind on forests and other terrestrial ecosystems,
- an in-depth understanding of ecological and environmental processes at various levels: cells, individuals, populations, ecosystems, landscapes and global systems, and
- the provision of methodological knowledge and competence to design and evaluate management plans and accompanying research for a range of natural resources.
