To inform conservation measures for fishes and improve effective fish management, the impacts of key environmental variables such as temperature must be understood. As anthropogenic factors coupled with global climate change have altered water temperatures, research has increasingly focused on understanding the mechanistic links between temperature changes and declines in native fish populations.

SEB Brighton 2016 session report: Super resolution microscopy helping to solve biological questions
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

The profile of super resolution microscopy rose rapidly at the end of 2015 with the award of the Nobel prize for chemistry to several pioneers in the field. The techniques available for super resolution imaging are now very broad and the main focus of this session was to illustrate how these methods can move on to actually help answer real biological questions.

SEB Brighton 2016 session report: The role of individual variation in the behaviour of animal groups
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

The last year has seen a shift toward understanding individual variation in animal behaviour and physiology within the context of social interactions. Depending on the situation, social forces appear capable of overriding or even amplifying existing variation among individuals. Our exciting session explored the role of individual variability in the functioning of animal groups.
