Current research includes:
- animal-plant interactions
- coastal defences
- dispersal ecology and biogeography
- climate change (ecology)
- population ecology.
As ecologists we employ a wide range of field and laboratory techniques, from satellite tagging of sea birds, to the use of molecular markers or stable isotopes to investigate dispersal, population structure and mating systems.
For more details on the range of ecological studies in MBERC please see the individual staff web pages.
