Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation

The Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation at UEA is one of the largest groups of ecologists and evolutionary biologists in Europe.

With over 20 members of faculty and a community of around 70 research staff and PhD students, CEEC brings together staff and students based in two departments, the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Environmental Sciences.  There are strong collaborative links in research and close integration of teaching between the two Schools, and some staff hold joint appointments.

External collaborators include the British Trust for OrnithologyRSPB, the John Innes Centre, ELSA and CEFAS.

Inside UEA we have collaborations with social scientists, environmental chemists, molecular biologists, and staff in the Medical School and School of Global Development*.


*As part of their 50th anniversary celebration in 2023, the School of International Development has changed its name to the School of Global Development.
