Course content

We study patterns in the natural environment, from the behaviour of individual organisms to dynamics of populations and the diversity of communities. Our aim is to go beyond description of these patterns- we wish to understand the ecological and evolutionary factors that drive them.

Ultimately, our goal is to understand the principles that underlie biological diversity - be this why individual mice behave differently, or why a disease varies in how common it is over time, or over geographical space
