Within the School, the Animal and Plant Science group works to understand terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems, how these are impacted by humans, and how to better manage such impacts. Our research outputs have important applications in the conservation of biodiversity from the individual to ecosystem level, and for ecosystem management. We have a strong reputation for applied education and research within life sciences, which we are keen to further develop and expand upon.
