Ecology, Evolution and Conservation

In Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation, we seek to understand a broad variety of processes that determine how organisms interact with their environment and how changes in environment can alter the characteristics of organisms over ecological and evolutionary timescales. Human populations and associated habitat modification have a substantial impact across almost every region of the globe. Changing human population pressures and patterns of resource use can lead to the rapid expansion of some species and the decline of others. Consequently, in this research theme we also seek to understand the causal factors behind species invasions and population declines and to develop appropriate tools and guidelines for the monitoring and managing of populations and the habitats that they occupy.
