Our world-class research in this area spans topics including animal behaviour, molecular ecology, sexual selection and sexual conflict, speciation, the evolutionary genomics of adaptation, evolutionary developmental, ecological immunity, and bioinformatics and life history evolution, giving you the opportunity to contribute new knowledge in an area of evolution and behaviour that interests you most.
