Specialisation Natural Resource Management

The development of sustainable agro-ecosystems requires knowledge and understanding of the complex relationships between soil health, growing practices and nutrient kinetics. Other important aspects related to sustainability are the interactions between agriculture and nature and competing claims on productive land on a worldwide scale.

Natural Resource Management provides knowledge and tools to understand the interactions between the biotic and abiotic factors in agro-systems in order to facilitate the current multitude of agricultural demands: bulk vs. specialty (pharmaceutical) products, food products vs. bio-diesel, conservation of biodiversity, dealing with climate change, eco-tourism.
