Aim of this course is to offer a balanced synthesys of knowledge and methods both in the biologic area and in the earth-sciences, which are the bases for professional activities concerning the interpretation and the protection of the recent natural world and its past evolution, focusing specifically on the correlation between organisms, substrate and environment.
The course is aimed to provide the students with an exhaustive learning of the natural world as well as the experimentation of the scientific method for the study of the biologic components, their mutual interactions, and their interactions with the physical environment; it will prepare graduates which will be able to correctly interpret both the biotic and abiotic factors of the environment and their interactions. The studies are widely multidisciplinary, ranging from biology to geology and to geography, with robust bases of chemistry and physics.
The course is aimed to prepare graduates who could have access to works with technical and professional functions in surveys and in the analysis, classification, preservation and recovery of the biotic components of the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. These activities could be carried out in parks, natural reserves, museums, and teaching institutions. Graduates in this discipline could also be employed in the analysis and monitoring of systems and biological processes both in natural settings and in anthropic ones, in order to preserve the natural environment, to check and ameliorate its quality, to identify and protect the natural and cultural heritage.

2 - Lo studente dovrà acquisire 12 CFU scegliendo tra gli insegnamenti di seguito elencati. L'unica regola da rispettare è che non più di un insegnamento può essere scelto in ambito Discipline biologiche (settori BIO/01-02-04-05-06-08) e non più di un insegnamento in ambito Discipline ecologiche (settori BIO/03-07 e GEO/04)

3 - Lo studente dovrà acquisire autonomamente 12 cfu tra tutti gli insegnamenti attivati dall'Ateneo (meglio se scelti all'interno dell'area scientifica), purchè coerenti con il progetto formativo, previa valutazione da parte del proprio tutor. Rientrano pertanto in questa scelta anche gli insegnamenti sopra elencati.
Gli esami di Zoologia e di Botanica devono essere preceduti dall'esame di Biologia Generale e Ambientale con elementi di Istologia. L'esame di Petrografia deve essere preceduto da quello di Mineralogia.
Si suggerisce di far precedere l'esame di Chimica a quello di Mineralogia.
