ANDY YOUNG’S RESEARCH GROUP

SOCIAL EVOLUTION | LIFE-HISTORIES | AGEING

 

WELCOME!

I am an Evolutionary Biologist at University of Exeter’s Centre for Ecology and Conservation in Cornwall
I lead a team of researchers studying Social Evolution and its impact on life-histories, in particular on patterns of Ageing. We ask both evolutionary and mechanistic questions, using long-term field studies of social birds and mammals, comparative analyses, and experimental evolutionary studies of microbes.

You can find out more about our Research, Team & Findings using the tabs above. Enjoy!
