Zoology

Zoology, or Animal Biology, is a very diverse field involving the study of organisms as a whole, and how they interact to create the ecosystems that are visible (and invisible) in the environment around us. Zoology encompasses a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from animal behaviour to their genetics, with conservation and paleobiology playing equally important roles. Research into these areas includes building robotic jellyfish and deciphering the communication of insects!
