Animal Behaviour and Ecology

Animal Behaviour

A wide range of ecological and behavioural research questions are addressed in the Schools of Life Sciences and Biosciences. We are particularly interested in finding evolutionary explanations for the behavioural and ecological interactions that we observe in nature. Our work includes empirical research in the laboratory and field, theoretical modelling and computer simulation. We study a diverse array of vertebrates, invertebrates and plants at individual, population and community levels.



Birds at the sunset

Within the School of Geography, research is focused on avian population dynamics, behavioural ecology and genetic structuring. We have worked on a number of birds of prey species (Madagascar fish eagle, Golden eagle, White-tailed eagle, Hen harrier and Asian fishing eagles) as well as waterbirds and passerines (eg. Dunlin).
