We are evolutionary ecologists working on the impacts of global change on species interactions and fitness. One of our main research themes uses extensive datasets on the spring phenology of plants and animals to try to identify the cues and mechanisms responsible for the spatial and temporal phenological variation. 



November 2016: We are advertising for two PhD positions - the first on mismatch in blue tits and the second on local adaptation in common frogs. See the opportunities page.
