Biography

Dr Tim Jessop is an integrative ecologist who studies the effects of environmental, ecological and anthropogenic disturbances on animal physiology, ecology and evolutionary biology. His primary research goal is to understand how disturbance processes act on the fitness of individuals to shape population and even community dynamics.
