McGill University

Environment: Biodiversity and Conservation Domain (B.Sc.)

Program Information
School: McGill University
Faculty: McGill School of Environment
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Natural Resources/Conservation, General
Description: This Domain links the academic study of biological diversity with the applied field of conservation biology. The study of biological diversity, or "biodiversity," lies at the intersection of evolution with ecology and genetics, combining the subdisciplines of evolutionary ecology, evolutionary genetics and ecological genetics. It has two main branches, the creation of diversity and the maintenance of diversity. Both processes are governed by a general mechanism of selection acting over different scales of space and time. This gives rise to a distinctive set of principles and generalizations that regulate rates of diversification and levels of diversity, as well as the abundance or rarity of different species.
