Research study systems
Our research study systems encompass a broad range of models for addressing fundamental and applied research questions. We are in the process of adding detail of additional systems that have broad research applications and which may be of interest to those looking to bring their research here and/or collaborate with us.
Using the application of sewage sludge to pasture land as a model to study the effects of pollutant exposure on animal and ecosystem health
We have recently established an urban-rural gradient of nest-boxes for hole-nesting passerines that connects the boxes in the SCENE woodlands to the University of Glasgow’s main campus allowing us to test how this gradient affects variation in biological rhythms, behaviour, physiology and genes
