Animal Ecology

At Animal Ecology we study the ecological causes and evolutionary consequences of variation among and within species in terms of behaviour, morphology and life-history.

RESEARCH AREAS

We concentrate on these areas:

  • Life history
  • Behavioural ecology
  • Speciation
  • Conservation biology
  • Theoretical evolutionary ecology

Some of our researchers from Animal Ecology are also involved in the Ageing Research Group and Uppsala Centre for Evolution and Genomics a collaboration with Evolutionary Biology.
