Animal Behaviour lab

The Animal Behaviour Lab comprises Professor Ashley Ward and his research group.

We focus on questions about the mechanisms and the functions of animal behaviour, integrating our extensive experimental work with theoretical approaches to better understand how and why animals do what they do.

As well as being of great intrinsic interest, the study of animal behaviour can provide vital insight into a variety of other disciplines, both within the biological sciences (physiology, conservation biology, toxicology, ecology) and beyond (psychology, sociology, economics).
