Research focus

  • Hatching asynchrony in birds, its causes and consequences.

  • The apparent paradox of infanticide.

  • Reproductive investment and productivity in birds.

  • The regulation of numbers within populations.

  • The co-evolution of species within ecological communities.

  • The use of life tables for identifying selective pressures on a species.

  • The behavioural ecology of pied flycatchers and blue tits.

  • Habitat management for the conservation and control of species.

This is optional, but you can include every last obscure conference proceeding if you like, following citation style described below. NB if you have included all of your publications above leave this box blank

Picture: Stenning.webpic.jpg


You MUST include a picture for your webpage. You can choose anything, but here are some suggestions:

1. a picture of you

2. a picture of your lab group, your study animal, or some such work related thing

3. a picture of something is part of your life - your garden, your favourite ecosystem, whatever.

Preferred format: jpeg
Format for listing publications.

All publications should be listed in a standard format as follows:

Surname Initial, Surname Initial (Year) Title. Journal Volume:Pages
Note that it has no bold or italics or any other fancy formatting (except italics for species names etc). If you use Endnote, export as Journal of Molecular Evolution format. It has been requested that we include full journal titles, but if this is a problem, then use abbreviations.
Here are examples for journal articles, books, book chapter.

Bromham L, Clark F, McKee JJ (2001) Discovery of a novel murine type C retrovirus by datamining. Journal of Virology 75:3053-3057 [Bromham.JME96.pdf]

pdf downloads of your publications

this is optional, but you are encouraged to include pdf files of as many of your top ten publications as possible for people to download. This makes your best work easily accessible to anyone who is interested. Don’t ask me about the copyright implications because I havent a clue.

Please send publications (in pdf format only) with your datasheet and photo to Noel (noel@sussex.ac.uk) with the file name format:


e.g. Bromham.JME96.pdf, Woolfit.Evol02.pdf.

You need to follow this naming convention if we are to make sense of all the files.
