Research Group: Ecology and Evolution

Currently Active: 

The Ecology and Evolution research group’s interests cover the interactions of species with their environment. We are addressing current and future issues of global significance such as the adaptation to changing environments, sustainable use of natural resources including energy, food and water security, and biodiversity conservation. Our research works across a variety of scales, from molecules to whole organisms, populations, communities and landscapes, combining expertise in ecological and evolutionary processes, conservation science, genetics, and modern analytical approaches for big data.  

Ecology and Evolution

Our research focuses on adaptations to changing environment, including the responses of organisms to stress factors brought about by environmental change at physiological, population and community levels. We also explore human responses to change such as the exploitation of natural systems for sources of bioenergy and ecosystem services, and the management of natural resources.
