Behavioural Ecology and Evolution

Research in this group encompasses the way in which the behavioural repertoires and physiology of animals have been selected to respond to differing environmental conditions. The research topics include diving physiology of marine mammals, predation and paternity in birds, offspring sex ratios, animal-plant interactions and speciation in insects and fish.
