Biogeography is the study of living things in space and time (including geological time). It involves an evaluation of the patterns and processes of plant and animal distributions; their diverse spatial patterns; and, the physical and biological processes contributing to these patterns at a variety of scales and over time.

This degree involves an interdisciplinary study of environmental geoscience, geomorphology, ecology, biodiversity and environmental change. A key focus is on how biodiversity varies in different ecosystems and at different spatial and temporal scales; and, how it is perceived, measured and governed. This interdisciplinary approach is essential for the understanding, management and conservation of biodiversity and ecological communities.

An enthusiastic and friendly team of geographers and environmentalists with wide research interests teach on the Biogeography course at Hope. You will find that Liverpool is a great setting to study Biogeography due to having surroundings that include stunning upland and coastal landscapes.
