Ecophysiology, Sensory Ecology and Behaviour

Ecophysiology, Sensory Ecology and Behaviour

This research group examines, from a wide range of perspectives, the interactions of animals, plants and microorganisms with their environment.

Major research themes include:

  • animal behaviour
  • behavioural ecology
  • ecology
  • evolutionary ecology
  • evolutionary genetics
  • evolution of vision and visual signals
  • ecophysiology of animals and plants
  • migration, orientation and animal tracking nutritional ecology, physiological and behavioural responses of animals towards their natural environment
  • population genetics
  • visual ecology

Members of this group are recognised internationally for their research on fundamental questions in biology and interrelations with the environment.

Our research is based on a strong and continuing engagement with the local community, industry, government and other research institutions and a commitment to the development of new partnerships both nationally and internationally.

This research group is now an integrated part of the Centre For Integrative Ecology.
