Welcome to the website of the International Geosciences master program focusing on Paleobiology and Climate and Earth Systems at the FAU/GeoZentrum Nordbayern!
The acute theme of global climate change and its impact on organisms and ecosystems requires a new generation of scientists. We provide theoretical concepts of macroecology and macroevolution, as well as statistical techniques and scientific programming in paleobiology. The second pillar of this specialization is the reconstruction of fossil environments and their local and global controls. We focus on carbonate systems, which are the result of the metabolic activity of organisms and thus reflect the interplay of the biosphere and the Earth-system at large. Our goal is to help students become internationally competitive in paleobiology and science-related fields.
