A new beginning is taking shape for the Department of Bioscience. After protracted preliminary work, including a new strategy, a number of strongholds have now been identified to make fertile ground for a new focus. As part of this work, it has been decided to change name to the Department of Ecoscience. This will be from 1 October 2021.
On 1 October 2021, Department of Bioscience changed to Department of Ecoscience. The Department has an ecosystem-oriented approach to research, and "ecology" means the study of the relationship between living creatures and their environment - the study of ecosystems - giving a clear signal that the Department focuses on the branch of natural sciences that deals with ecosystems and ecology.

Plant diseases are an increasing threat to food production and several diseases are resistant against existing pesticides. A new Danish study show that ants excrete chemical compounds that effectively inhibit plant pathogens, even where current pesticides are giving up.
A story about one of the more untraditional things our research contributes to.
For the past 25 years, researchers have carried out measurements of the climate and environment in East Greenland. This has resulted in an extremely valuable time series of many different data – primarily on the Zackenberg/Daneborg area and within the framework of the Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring (GEM) program. Presently, researchers at the Arctic Research Centre, Aarhus University, are setting up advanced autonomous measurement stations that expand the data coverage and manage themselves all year round.
For 25 years, researchers have been collecting massive quantities of data on climate change in Greenland. Now the data is to be available to upper secondary school students through online courses.
Five talented researchers set to receive Aarhus University Research Foundation’s PhD Award for their PhD projects from 2020. One of them is Post.doc. Mette Vodder Carstensen from Catchment Science and Environmental Management!
Forskere fra Aarhus Universitet vil kortlægge de kemiske variationer i planteolien og genetikken bag. Forskningen vil gøre os klogere på planters tilpasningsevner ved ændringer i klimaet.
Eliteforsk travel grants are awarded to very talented PhD students, allowing them travel abroad and improve their skills in the best research environments in the world.
