十. Master Program in Ecology-Foreign Students

1. Introduction(专业介绍)

Ecology is the science that studies the interrelationship between biology and the environment. With the growth of population, rapid economic development, over-exploitation of natural resources, increased environmental pollution, and global climate change, ecological research has received much attention. The combination of ecology and molecular biology in the microscopic domain has formed molecular ecology. In the macro field, the ecological research scale is extended to the biosphere, and 3S technology is applied to study global ecological problems. At the same time, the interaction between human and ecological environment has become a hot spot in ecological research. The ecological discipline of SHOU is characterized by water ecological research, with equal emphasis on theory and practice. The main research fields include molecular ecology, freshwater ecology, and marine ecology. The main research directions include water ecological basic theory, red tide and eutrophication, biodiversity, invasion and control of alien species, ecological security assessment, ecological planning, ecological restoration and ecological modeling.
