Operating in an interdisciplinary environment, researchers from the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Division use experimental approaches to examine how the natural world functions, changes and adapts.
Our aim is to change the way biologists think about and study ecology and evolution.
We utilise an array of tools, including theoretical and computational models, field work, whole organism and behavioural analysis, and molecular biology and genomics, to conduct research spanning phenomena, from studies of species of microbes to larger, more complex organisms.
The outcomes are used to influence and change public, government and industry practices. For example, new methodologies developed within the Division have been used to identify resistance to anticoagulant rodent poisons, allowing stakeholders to implement risk mitigation measures.
Our academics routinely collaborate with partners both nationally and internally, including the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Trust for Ornithology, Syngenta and Bayer.
