The School promotes an interdisciplinary approach to both applied and fundamental research problems and to postgraduate training. Research in the School is organised into three major interdisciplinary centres: the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI), Biomedical Sciences Research Complex (BSRC) and Centre for Biological Diversity (CBD). Together these centres encompass the full spectrum of research in biological sciences, spanning investigations on the properties and behaviour of individual molecules to planetary environmental dynamics.

Fantastic feasts and where to find them : using biologging to investigate foraging behaviour of marine megafauna across a range of spatiotemporal scales (University of St Andrews, 2021-12-01) - ThesisUnderstanding the strategies animals use to locate, select, and capture prey can guide more robust conservation efforts. In marine megafauna, foraging is often inferred from infrequent surface positions using biotelemetry ...
