Since 2008 a genetic management plan for African wild dogs, developed by researchers in our College, has been in use across the European zoo network (which houses roughly half the world’s captive African wild dog population) in 53 participating zoos across 16 European countries and Israel.

Up to a quarter of Europe’s marine renewable energy potential is in Scottish waters, but harnessing wind, wave and tidal energy must be sensitive to Scotland’s significant seabird populations. Research from our College is used by industry stakeholders to identify and preserve the conservation status of seabird species most susceptible to such developments.

Research conducted in our College has produced one of the most widely used genetic tests to determine the sex of most bird species. This has provided a commercial tool for diagnostic service providers, and meets a simple – yet key – necessity of captive breeding and re-introduction programmes.
