We study animal biology at the cellular, organism and population levels to answer fundamental questions on evolution and lifetime development. Species studied include a wide range of both invertebrates and vertebrates.
The research programme relies on independent research by the student supervised by an advisory panel of academic staff. In addition, there are training courses provided by the University to develop key skills in research.
Main research areas are:
Evolution of life histories Reproductive biology and embryology Sensory biology Paleobiology Functional anatomy.
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 inClevelandBayhorses.
The School has excellent modern animal facilities and is home to some of the most exciting and innovative research work in zoology.
