Beyond the labs
We take advantage of our natural surroundings to create amazing fieldwork experiences in addition to opportunities to travel the world with residential overseas field trips.
Home to over 1,500 species of plants, 400 species of birds and 50 terrestrial mammals, Doñana National Park is one of the most important biodiversity hotspots in Europe.
You will collect significant amounts of field data and focus on one of six interconnected study themes spanning: alpine climate and hydrology, glacial processes, alpine rivers, streams, soils and ecosystems.
Based in the beautiful Rift Valley, you'll explore the staggering biodiversity of local aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, at the same time considering how best to monitor and protect it.
The ecology field course to Mull provides a chance to experience some amazing landscapes, from mountains to coasts and to learn about the ecology of key plant and animal species.
A place for Abbie
My course at Lancaster University is like no other and it has everything I want from a degree. I am able to study topics in my first year that I have touched upon before, whilst discovering new things every day.
There are so many interesting modules, and the really great thing about my course is the wide range of subject areas we study, such as evolution, aquatic ecology, zoology and so much more. This means the scope of my learning is forever growing in the direction I want it to, especially as I have opportunities further down the line to specialise in my area of interest.
It's definitely an advantage that the University is on the Lake District's doorstep. I have many opportunities to visit various places which helps me to visualise my learning and delve deeper into ecology and conservation out in the field.
Abbie Pilkington, BSc Ecology and Conservation
Meet the Team
Professor Martin McAinsh
Director of Undergraduate Biology and Admissions Tutor for Zoology and Ecology & Conservation
My research focuses on plant cell biology. In particular, I am interested in how plants respond to environmental changes, such as drought or ozone pollution, and how this relates to sustainable agriculture. This research relates directly to my undergraduate teaching, which includes topics on plant responses to environmental change, biochemistry and cell biology. In addition to my teaching and research, I lead admissions to the portfolio of Biosciences degree programmes at Lancaster.
Dr Mike Roberts
Senior Lecturer and Admissions Tutor for Zoology and Ecology and Conservation
In addition to researching the biology of plant stress responses focusing on plant-insect and plant-pathogen interactions, I am also the Programme Director for our portfolio of Zoology and Ecology degree schemes. I am therefore responsible for ensuring that all of our undergraduate modules are not only exciting and engaging, but also challenging. You’ll likely meet me during your studies at Lancaster as I teach during all three years of our Zoology and Ecology & Conservation degrees.
