Dr Thomas Reed

Interests and background:
Tom Reed is a lecturer in zoology at the School of Biological, Earth, and Environmentals Sciences, UCC. He has broad interests in a range of topics, including local adaptation, phenotypic plasticity, phenology, senescence, parasite-mediated selection, feed backs between ecology and evolution, and the impact of human activities (in particular climate change and the release of captive-bred individuals) on the evolutionary dynamics and demography of wild populations, in particular salmonid fishes and birds.
