Centre for Ecology, Environment and Sustainability

We aim to undertake internationally recognised research on environmental change and its impacts on biodiversity, and to be a leading provider of education and training in environmental science.

We are a multi-disciplinary research team of geographers, environmental scientists and ecologists. Specialist interests include remote sensing, the ecology of birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals and plants, in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments.

Our research is designed to support policy development and implementation, and we have strong links with conservation practitioners and policy makers locally, regionally and internationally.

Hurricane Florence, for example, is forcing more than a million people on the US East Coast to flee from their homes.
