Scientific Objectives

Context, issues and spheres of activity

"Ecology and Evolution" develops its research activities in the domain of diversity of the living, and more precisely on the evolution, adaptation and the diversification of organisms and the way they function in different environments, both natural (land and aquatic) and anthropic. It strives to promote a multidisciplinary approach to these studies. The levels of approach which are pertinent for this approach are the individual gene, the population, species, the community, the ecosystem, the countryside and the biosphere. Together they rely upon three approaches: empirical, experimental and theoretical. On the other hand, the graduate school develops competences in the studies of the evaluation of biological quality, of help in decision-making as regards the management of natural resources and town and country planning and the development of natural resources. The goal of the graduate school is to offer a range of integrated training courses in the domains concerned, which should enable doctoral researchers to together understand all the issues of research in relation to the expectations of society and to thus provide them with means of entering the professional world of research, teaching and business.
