The Department of Biology has been restructured and the four functional groups - Biochemistry, Ecology and Evolution, Plant Biology and Zoology have been merged. Distinct research groups are recognised which you are invited to visit at the "Research groups" link above. Teaching at both the Bachelor and Master levels reflects the interests of the research groups and the respective programmes can be consulted using the "Studies" link above and then in the left sidebar (in French and German for the Bachelor and in English for the Master).
