Dr Christopher Hassall’s primary interests lie in the biological impacts of human activity (principally climate change and urbanisation), as well as how the natural world influences people via ecosystem services. In relation to water research, his work tests key hypotheses in ecology and evolution based around urban freshwater habitats and their role within city landscapes. Other research interests include macroecology, animal behaviour, pollinator conservation, invasive species and evolutionary biology using a variety of insect and vertebrate taxa as model systems.
