Dr Mike Webster
Lecturer in Behavioural and Evolutionary Biology


 

My research is concerned with the functions and evolution of social behaviour in animals. I’m particularly interested in how groups are organised, how animals interact and acquire information from one another, and in how individual behaviour affects and is affected by that of the group. For the most part I use shoaling fishes and aquatic crustaceans as study systems for understanding more general aspects of social behaviour.
