Plant and Invertebrate Ecology
Mission: To integrate research on the ecology, behaviour and genetics of organisms inhabiting agricultural ecosystems in order to conserve and exploit biodiversity, monitor and predict the impacts of environmental change, and optimise the performance of both chemical and non-chemical components of crop protection strategies.
Note: Dr Jonathan Newman's Aquatic Plant Management Group (centre for aquatic plant management) moved to the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology some years ago. You can find his current page here:
