Dr Robert Wilson
Senior Lecturer in Conservation Biology
I convene the ecology modules for the Biological Sciences degree programme at the Streatham Campus. The first year module (BIO1336) provides a basic introduction to ecology. The second year module (BIO2076) considers how ecological theory and research inform practical applications, with a strong focus on conservation. The third year module (BIO3037) critically evaluates the roles of ecology and environmental science in understanding and tackling environmental issues such as climate change, sustainability and food security. I teach on all these modules with Dr James Cresswell, and on the second and third year modules with colleagues including Dr Fiona Mathews and Dr Dan Bebber.
I also contribute teaching on terrestrial ecology and conservation to the second year module BIO2096 – Practical Skills in Field Ecology, a two week summer field course based around Devon. I was formerly based at the university’s Penryn Campus, where I taught undergraduate and MSc modules in ecology and conservation biology, including field courses in Britain and Europe.
