Ecology and Conservation

The Ecology and Conservation group at our Cornwall Campus focuses on pressing issues in animal ecology including: the impacts of renewable energy generation; interactions between wildlife, fisheries and agriculture (particularly in relation to TB in badgers and cattle); new techniques in monitoring movement in wild animals; over-harvesting; and the impacts of climate change. They combine field, laboratory, and modelling studies, carried out globally in ecosystems ranging from farmland to coral reefs.
