As a researcher in the School, you will have access and the opportunity to collaborate with research-active academics working on high profile studies and projects.
The School is undertaking research into animal and plant biology at the cellular, organism and population levels in order to answer fundamental questions on evolution and ecology. Animal species studied include a wide range of both invertebrates and vertebrates.
Research Areas, Projects & Topics:
Behavioural ecology Assessment and conservation of biodiversity Evolutionary ecology Population studies and genetic variability Animal-plant interactions and consequences for biodiversity. Recent and current research projects include:
Invertebrate biodiversity on hedgerows Behaviour and ecology of free ranging wild bream Population dynamics of Barbastelle bats. Effects of developmental temperature on post-copulatory sexual selection Use of artificial beans in the control of stored food pests Genetic variability in Cleveland Bay horses.
