About Conservation Biology at University of Nottingham

Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 taught credits. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor. Candidates should have at least a lower second class Honours Degree in a relevant topic.

At Nottingham, we use our expertise in population genetics, animal behaviour/ecology, and evolutionary biology to explore a wide range of key research questions in conservation biology. Research projects in this area are likely to either involve intensive field work, laboratory experiments, or data analysis/mathematical modelling. Recent work within the school has concerned the conservation genetics of several endangered European carnivores, including the critically endangered European mink. Other members of staff are applying genetic methods to study populations of the endangered fen raft spider, in order to inform the management of this species, the biodiversity of lichen-forming fungi in Antarctica, and the distribution.
