We have created a new animal behaviour centre which is under the leadership of Professor McLaren.
Our research group is now uniquely placed as one of the few international groups with a critical mass of research strength in behavioural ecology, sensory ecology, signalling and communication and animal cognition. We explore the causes, functions and evolution of animal behaviour and how it adapts each species to its natural environment.
Our research addresses two fundamental questions: How and what information is gathered from the physical and social environment? How is this information used to make decisions in order to maximise survival and reproduction? Find out more.
The Centre for Research in Animal Behaviour hosts a series of seminars. Find out more about the visiting speakers and topics.
