Seabird Special Interest Group

Seabird Special Interest Group

The University of Glasgow has a long-standing history of excellence in seabird research. The Seabird Special Interest Group is a network of researchers connected to the University of Glasgow who are interested in the demography, movement  and resource utilisation of seabirds. We also have an applied research focus on the impact of environmental change on seabird populations. We work on seabird species in the UK and overseas, and our methodology ranges from GPS telemetry, remote sensing and stable isotope analysis to GIS and quantitative modelling.

In addition to traditional scientific outputs, members of the group have published a number of accessible articles and blog posts about their research aimed at a general audience interested in seabird ecology. Read more about our public engagement.

We encourage interested students and collaborators to get in touch to develop research projects. Please also get in touch if you are interested in getting involved with the group in any other way, such as for example giving a talk or running a paper discussion. We are very open to collaborations and joint events with other SIGs.
