Marine Biology & Ecology Research Centre (MBERC)


Marine Biology & Ecology Research Centre (MBERC)

Members of the Marine Biology & Ecology Research Centre (MBERC) take a question driven approach to science that provides a basis for high quality research and research-informed teaching.

The group consists of closely collaborating biologists and ecologists from marine, freshwater and terrestrial backgrounds, with research interests ranging from epigenetics to ecosystem function and climate change. This broad research base provides the opportunity to address novel and topical cross-disciplinary questions and is used to inform our highly successful postgraduate (MRes Marine Biology) and undergraduate (Marine Biology, Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology & Marine Biology & Oceanography) degree programmes. MBERC has three main research themes:

  • Biodiversity
  • Developmental Ecology
  • Behavioural Ecology
Please see the Centre website for more details.
