Biodiversity is threatened by climate change and other consequences of the growing human population. To solve this and other global challenges we need researchers with an in-depth understanding of how we maintain ecosystems in the face of environmental change.

Our world-class research in this area spans topics including global change ecology, biodiversity science, tropical forest conservation, palaeoecology and palynology, urban ecology, environmental pollution, and agricultural ecology, giving you the opportunity to contribute new knowledge in an area of ecology and environment that interests you most.
