Here's why you want to study Biological Sciences: Ecology and Evolution (track) in Amsterdam

Word-renowned research

Biological research at the UvA is carried out at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) and the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS).


We aim to unravel how organisms and ecosystems function in all their complexity, and how they change because of natural processes and human influence.

Be part of our community

As a student you participate actively in increasing our understanding of the diversity and dynamics of ecosystems, from the level of molecules and genes to entire ecosystems.

Specialised tracks

There are four specialised study tracks, each with its own focus within the larger field of biology research, and one more general track.

Ecology and Evolution will suit you, if you...

  1. Are looking for expert training to thoroughly understand how plant and animal species originate and together shape communities that inhabit the ecosystems on our planet.
  2. Want to explore the options to improve and protect the earth's biodiversity.
