The Ecology of Vision Research Group 

The Ecology of Vision Research Group comprises 3 members of staff with diverse research and teaching activities that are linked by a common interest: to understand how visual functions of organisms relate to behaviour and environment, and to place this information in an evolutionary context. . Sensory Ecology was highlighted in the last Research Assessment Exercise as a particular strength of the School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol.
