Ecology, Evolution, Behaviour and Environmental Economics

    Organisation profile

    Members of this research cluster are involved in a wide range of projects in Ecology, Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Economics.  Research includes broad areas of Ecology (Marine, Freshwater and Terrestrial), Behavioural Ecology; Ecophysiology, Animal Behaviour; Molecular Ecology, Conservation (including Conservation Genetics), Aquaculture, Systematics (both Molecular and Morphological), and Environmental Economics.

    This diverse range of interests is linked by common approaches including the integration of theoretical, laboratory, field and economic investigations.  Research facilities include the QUB Marine Laboratory at Portaferry, which hosts the Modiolus Restoration Research Group (MRRG).  Quercus, a major research centre for biodiversity and conservation biology in Northern Ireland, is housed on the main MBC site.  The Gibson Institute for Land Food and Environment is also housed on the MBC site.
