Aside being relatively new, the Masters on Ecology have some particularities that make it distinct from other Brazilian Masters in Ecology:

1- The geographical area used by advisors in their scientific projects includes several morph climatic domains, such as Atlantic Forest (including seasonal forest, ombrophilous forest, coastal sand vegetation, upland forests) and dry forest (Caatinga), and several climates as well (As', BSHw, BSHw', BSHs', Cw'a, Cs'a), thus offering excellent opportunities for the investigation of ecological patterns variations in different environmental situations. The projects focus, therefore, on Bazilian NE region, from the littoral to the interior, including aquatic ecosystems.

2- The Program has an excellent infrastructure of laboratories, classroom, administrative office and two rooms exclusive for students: informatics laboratory and sociability room. Four university stations are also available to the Program studies: Tapacurá Ecological Station, Station for Studies on Migratory Birds and Environmental Resources, Experimental Station of Small Animals and Sugar Cane Experimental Station. Aside the advisors’ labs, the university has two communitarian labs that allow the use of precision equipment.

3- Some Program’s advisors are nationally known because of their scientific production, and 40% of the advisors receive a scientific production fellowship that is awarded by Brazilian government only for scientists that have a regularly high scientific production.

4- The Program has an efficient mechanism to obtain government fellowships for postgraduate students. All qualified students use to receive fellowships.

5- The advisors have national and international scientific partnerships, favoring the integration of students in those scientific nets;

6- The research lines allow the development of studies that contribute with Brazilian social-economic development (specially the NE region) and collaborate with environmental management and conservation;

7- The UFRPE has five scientific collections that includes Existem na Instituição cinco Coleções Científicas constituídas com acervo expressivo sobre a biodiversidade regional (Herbário-Flora, Insetos, Peixes, Anfíbios e Répteis) que possibilitam de forma eficiente a resolução de questionamentos taxonômicos e servem de referenciais em estudos ecológicos
