What are the impacts of global change - such as fish extraction, climate change, pollution and industrial development on marine top predators?
Dr Stephen Votier
Senior Lecturer in Natural Environment
I am an ornithologist with a particular interest in seabirds. The aim of my research is to understand the impact of global change on marine top predators. Most my work is field-based, where I study how key stressors - such as fish extraction, climate change, pollution and industrial development - have impacts at the individual, population and community levels. This work is also heavily influenced by the recently emerging fields of bio-logging and analysis of intrinsic biogeochemical markers.
I am also a member of the Biosciences department in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences.
