The Department of Zoology, within the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Division at the University of Oxford, has a long-standing reputation for world class research and teaching. Research in the Department is organised into several Research Groups; these span a broad spectrum of zoology ranging from ecology and behaviour, through to molecular evolution, development and infectious disease biology. The John Krebs Field Station and Wytham Woods are used by several Research Groups, including the Edward Grey Institute of Field Ornithology (founded 1936) and the Wildlife Conservation Unit (WildCRU). The WCRU have recently established a Research Centre at Tubney House. Molecular and cellular research is supported by excellent laboratory facilities, while several members of the Department are members of the recently built Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research.
