From molecules to forests, ecology is a broad discipline that teaches you how to make sense of the interactions between organisms and their environment.
We now have a great deal of information about the natural world available to us – the problem is how to make sense of that information.
Ecology attempts to do this. It is a broad discipline that teaches you how to make sense of the interactions between organisms and their environment.
The Bachelor of Science (Ecology and Conservation) at Massey offers some of the best courses on ecology in New Zealand - making it the number one choice if you want a broad knowledge in the discipline.
Practical labs and fieldtrips are an important part of all the ecology courses.
You might learn how to identify fish and invertebrates for monitoring water quality, how to build a computer model to predict the recovery of an endangered species or set a sustainable quota for a fishery, or how to survey biodiversity in a forest or the ocean.
The courses taught in the ecology and conservation major include:
• biodiversity of New Zealand • ecology and conservation • biological evolution • ecosystem health
• freshwater ecology • conservation science • plant-biotic interactions • molecular ecology
Note: July start will take 3.5 years to complete.
