Museum Collections Predict Species Abundance in The Wild
Scientists develop method to count outdoor species from indoor museum records
Museum collections of plants and critters—small mammals, fish, insects and amphibians—are a good reflection of most species’ relative abundance in the wild, finds a surprising new study by University of Vermont researchers and international scientists, who analyzed 1.4 million field observations and 73,000 museum records of over 22,00 species.
Guide / information booklet for future doctoral students.
As part of the STER project, one of the tasks related to the preparation of a guide / information booklet for future doctoral students has been completed. The guide is mainly devoted to educating doctoral students at our University. We also present aspects of everyday life in Poland, as well as legal and administrative issues related to the legalization of stay.
Get a double master degree in biological sciences!
We are the first University in Poland to offer a double degree programme in biological sciences. The Master Programme managed in collaboration with Parthenope University of Naples (Italy) is organized under the auspices of the UNESCO Chair in “Environment, Resources and Sustainable Development”, of which Nicolaus Copernicus University is an official partner.
