Our Zoology research is carried out through our Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG), an interdisciplinary community of scientists working with relevant external organisations and industries in order to improve our understanding of the natural world and provide innovative solutions to the urgent and complex global issues of sustainability, ethical resource use and biodiversity loss. Our research has impact through conservation and wildlife management policy and through the animal-based leisure and food production economies. We operate in both human-dominated and 'natural' landscapes.
We have particular strengths in animal behaviour and welfare; palaeoclimate research; ecosystem restoration; biodiversity and taxonomy. We have been able to enhance and build on these areas by transferring intellectual experience as well as statistical, genetic and chemical analytical techniques and geographic information system (GIS) expertise. This has led us to develop a number of exciting new research projects and take advantage of emerging opportunities in a diverse yet coherent way.
