Biology and Zoology Research (incl. Marine)

We focus on an understanding of biological and ecological systems and then apply our findings to a wide range of problems.

Our research influences management and policy with staff serving on both national and international committees that contribute to real-world impact.

Our work is funded from a range of sources as diverse as our research activities.

Funding has been provided by NERC, BBSRC, ESRC, EPSRC, RELU, EU, The Leverhulme Trust, Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund, Darwin Initiative, DEFRA and a wide range of industrial sources.

From gathering data to prevent species extinction in our rainforests to protecting vital habitats in our oceans, working together with our partners, we: 

  • make important discoveries to tackle today's global challenges
  • support the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our research

Research is focused around three research groups:
