Ecology is the study of how living organisms interact with each other and their environments. Studies in ecology examine biological interactions at micro- to regional scale and rely on diverse approaches including biological surveys, manipulative experimentation, molecular genetics, and mathematical modelling. Ecological research also has important implications and applications to Conservation Biology, Climate Change Science, Environmental Planning, and Environmental Policy.

The Ecology Centre aims to promote and facilitate ecological research at The University of Queensland regardless of the School, Centre or Institute where a particular research group or opportunity is based. To do this we offer and promote ecological research, activities and educational opportunities for undergraduates through to academic staff at The University of Queensland and around the world. You are welcome to sign up to the Ecology Centre mailing list.

The Ecology Centre is located on the St Lucia Campus in Brisbane, where the large majority of students and staff are located, including the Director, Assoc Prof Rod Fensham.
