Seminar: Biodiversity and Evolutionary Theory
Lecturers: Sabine Agatha
, Peter Comes
, Anja Hörger
, and Andreas Tribsch
Science is based on the development of research ideas that aim to close gaps in our knowledge. In this seminar, you will develop your own research idea in the fields of taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, biodiversity, and population genetics (among others).
You are free to select the group of organisms you are interested in and the investigation methods (lab or field experiments). Here, you will learn how to develop your initial idea into a real scientific proposal considering all relevant aspects such as the existing scientific background, the importance of your planned research for the scientific community and/or society as well as practical issues such as cost and time planning.
