Ecological Developmental Adaptability Life Sciences

The aim of this major is to clarify the generation and mode of life of organisms, the evolution mechanisms that have created these organisms, the role of biological interactions, and the effect of human activity on ecosystems by researching the environmental response of the organisms and the background adaptation mechanisms, through the layers of life phenomena from genes to individuals, groups, and ecosystems. We also aim to educate and foster graduates who fully utilize the cross-sectoral knowledge and understanding obtained through this study.
