Second year at AgroParisTech: Thesis


The thesis will deal with environmental, tropical issues in natural ecosystems or within cropping systems including tree as a major component. Preparation, including discussions with AgroParisTech-ENGREF partners from research (e.g. CIRAD, IRD, INRA) and education (Montpellier Supagro) institutions of the Agropolis campus of Montpellier, as well as a bibliography will be made throughout the first semester (depending on which optional modules the student will attend). Fieldwork should last at least 5 months and preferably in the tropical area. The thesis project will be evaluated by teaching staff and the supervisor within Module 9 (Research plan). The thesis will be defended at a public seminar. Thesis content, defence quality and behaviour during field training will be evaluated.
