H2 Short, snappy title

The Animal Section of the SEB has a diverse range of interests on whole-organism biology. But we are also interested at the links to cellular processes at lower levels of biological organisation, as well as associations between physiology, locomotion and behaviour in the context of ecophysiology or ecology. However, the core theme is the biology of the whole organism.

The Animal Section is split into special interest groups to help manage our affairs, but these boundaries are not fixed scientifically and the groups share scientific events and interests. The groups include biomechanics, osmoregulation, animal respiration, neurobiology and animal genomics.

Information about the different Animal Section interest groups can be found here. Each interest group is headed by a group convenor and, along with our co-opted member, make up the SEB Animal Section Committee.
