WHO WE ARE

The University of Leeds is a large research university in the north of England. The Faculty of Biological Sciences at Leeds is one of the largest collections of biologists in the UK, and the university is consistently one of the largest centres of BBSRC and NERC funded research. The Ecology and Evolution research group within the faculty has twice served as a Marie Curie centre of excellence in postgraduate teaching of biodiversity and conservation science.

WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE IS

We have substantial experience in spatial ecology of populations and communities, in agricultural ecology and agri-environmental management, and in the development of novel tools to analyse and visualise these issues.
