Program Overview

Program Description:

Biologists and Geoscientists at the Goethe-University Frankfurt and the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre aim to understand the dynamics of current and past changes in ecosystems and environments, focusing on a diverse range of organism groups. For many abundant organisms (marine algae, fungi, vertebrates, etc.), surprisingly little is understood about their ecological interactions and ecosystem functions within the context of global change. The aim of this course is to train a new generation of scientists in the interdisciplinary skills needed to investigate fundamental questions about biodiversity, macroecology, evolutionary trends, and their role in quantitative paleoenvironmental reconstructions across large spatial scales and geological time. Students will be trained in techniques across a variety of subjects including macroevolution, modelling, phylogenetic methods, systematics, morphometry, proxy development for environmental reconstruction, statistics, and data analysis.

2100 EUR. The programme fee for participants is 2,100 €. It consists of: – 1,500 € for the seminar and cultural programme, the German language courses, all study material, insurance and the transportation fee within Frankfurt – 600 € for optional accommodation incl. daily breakfast If we receive your application until 28th February 2017 you will profit from an Early Bird Rate amounting of 200 €.
