Ecology

The science of ecology studies the interrelationship between organisms and their environment, and engages with questions pertaining to the dispersal and abundance of species.

Ecological research examines how the habitat conditions affect aspects such as inter- and intraspecific competition, the composition of ecological societies, prey-predator relations, parasites and the spread of diseases, and more.

Research in these fields seeks to combine models representing specific processes with empirical studies that examine research hypotheses, with the aim of advancing the ecological theories.  Understanding these processes is directly connected to our ability to protect species (and is thus at the basis of nature conservation).
