Ecology and the Environment

Offering fundamental and applied research that informs international understanding of Earth, environmental and ecological systems.

Ecology and the Environment are at the fore of the Ecology and Environment Research Centre which focuses on the biological, chemical and physical processes that govern the sustainability of Earth systems and ecosystems.  We have strong links to industry, policy and environmental EU and UK non-governmental organisations and charities. For example, we advise numerous UK and international Government departments on aviation policy.  We also advise and inform international conservation organisations and provide legislative advice to wildlife services.
