About

The Animal Ecology - Environmental Change programme offered at University of Glasgow aim to predict the consequences of rapid environmental change such as that due to climate, habitat loss, renewable energy growth, pollution and over-exploitation of natural resources on biodiversity and human and animal health.

Overview

The environment is changing faster than at any time in recorded history, due to a range of factors including climate change, habitat loss, renewable energy developments, pollution and over-exploitation of natural resources. These changes are having profound effects on biodiversity and human and animal health - and we need to be able to predict the consequences.

Learning outcomes

Animal Ecology - Environmental Change Institute at University of Glasgow integrates studies of the effects of environmental change operating at all levels of biological organisation. For instance, at the cellular level we are investigating how environmental conditions influence physiological and molecular processes including metabolism, oxidative damage, telomere loss  and the rate of ageing. 

We have many links to other research in the Institute and the wider university.  For example:

  • through the effect of environmental conditions on disease transmission or food production
  • through investigation of how animals evolve in the face of changing environments
  • through links with geographers, statisticians and mathematicians in the College of Science and Engineering.

Programme Structure

Specific areas of interest include:

  • Conservation management of African ecosystems
  • Protected area management
  • Measuring biodiversity and abundance (this presumably overlaps with other themes)
  • Human dimensions of conservationAquatic ecosystem connectivity
  • Sustainable aquaculture
  • Behavioural and physiological approaches to improved production and welfare of farmed fish
  • Evolutionary ecology, life-history trade-offs and phenotypic evolution
