We investigate the physiological and behavioural responses of fish, frogs and reptiles to changing environmental conditions including assessing and predicting the impact of human-induced environmental change.
Research in the Eco-lab encompasses three themes which underpin the questions we ask and the methods we use. Ecophysiology is the core discpline and approach taken in the lab. We utilise a range of techiques and methods, including biotelemetry, to monitor our study species in the wild. A major thrust of our lab is in the emerging field of Conservation Physiology.
Our lab provides training opportunities to emerging scientists in the field of comparative, ecological, and conservation physiology.
