Program Details

Biology: Biological Diversity and Systematics

School: McGill University
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Ecology, Evolution, Systematics and Population Biology, Other
Description: The immense variety of living things is one of the defining features of the natural world. The study of biological diversity is a scientific discipline in its own right, closely connected to ecology and evolutionary biology.

Biodiversity science addresses how new species are formed, the ecological processes that maintain such a wide variety of different kinds of organisms, and why organisms become extinct. It is concerned with the characteristics of different organisms, and emphasizes the detailed study of particular groups. Our knowledge of diversity is organized through the study of systematics which seeks to understand the history of life through the phylogenetic and genetic relationships of living things. An appreciation of diversity and a knowledge of the principles and procedures of systematics are essential in ecology and evolutionary biology, and underlie all work in resource utilization and conservation biology.
