Making a difference at the School of Biosciences
Our research has a real impact across many areas, addressing major global challenges, seeking to deliver new solutions with major economic, societal and environmental impact.
A group of synthetic substances known as “forever chemicals” because of their environmental persistence have been found in otters across England and Wales.
Global change is causing freshwater species to be lost twice as fast as in any other ecosystem, and new research, which studied Welsh rivers and streams for over 30 years, has found that the number of specialist invertebrates are dwindling.
Research taking place in Wales could see the return of lost eagle species to our countryside, bringing both conservation and economic benefits.
