We support studies of genes, individuals, behaviour, populations and phylogeny:


Genes and chromosomes: QTL identification, linkage mapping, evolutionary genetics;

Individuals: individual identification, abundance and distribution, species and hybrid identification;

Behaviour: behavioural ecology, mating strategies, mate choice, reproductive behavior, dispersal, kin and sexual selection;

Populations: effective population size, genetic bottlenecks, population structure, landscape genetics (e.g. habitat fragmentation), spatial ecology;

Phylogeny: molecular systematics, biodiversity, conservation biology.


We are also able and willing to support various other studies; 

please contact Deborah Dawson (D.A.Dawson@Sheffield.ac.uk) to discuss.
