Movement Ecology and Biodiversity Dynamics Lab

We are interested in understanding how individuals respond to environmental change, e.g. through changes in movement, and how this in turn drives the structure and distribution of populations and communities, leading to dynamic changes in biodiversity. Our work is not system specific but question-driven, thus we work on contrasting study systems (invertebrates, vertebrates, plants), using experimental, statistical, and simulation modelling approaches. Our questions span different levels of ecological organisation, from the behaviour and traits of individuals to the structure and function of landscapes and ecosystems, and we are equally excited about basic and applied research.

We are based at the Department of Biosciences, Swansea University in Wales (UK) and are part also of the Dynamic Ecology Group. Institutional web page here. Fancy a visit or would like to join us? Drop us a note!
