Professor Gareth Jones

Biography

I graduated from the University of London with a degree in Ecology, and then did my PhD on the behavioural ecology of birds at Stirling. I came to Bristol in 1985 to work on aerodynamics of bat flight, and was then awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship to combine my interests in ecology, behaviour and bat biology. I have worked on bats on 5 continents, with recent studies based in China, Madagascar, Malaysia, Malawi and Colombia. In 2010 I was awarded the Gerrit S. Miller Award at the University of Toronto in recognition of "outstanding service and contribution to the field of chiropteran biology." My recent research has focussed on conservation biology, especially global change biology and molecular ecology.
