We research and teach whole organism biology from genes to ecosystems including: animal behavior, ecology, environmental science, evolution, development, physiology, parasitology and wildlife biology. Our work supports applications in environmental decisions, health for people, animals and the environment (One Health), ecosystem management, conservation, restoration and environmental monitoring.

Zoology is one of the four disciplines in the School of Natural Sciences, including BotanyGeography, and Geology, and continues to be one of the most popular undergraduate degree choices in Science at Trinity Zoology graduates can be found literally all over the world, including a permanent presence in Antarctica (Manahan Peak, named after a 1976 graduate). Zoology graduate Professor Bill Campbell received the Nobel prize for medicine and physiology in 2016. The Provost  announced the creation of a lectureship in honour of Professor Campbell entitled the William C. Campbell Lectureship in Parasite Biology on September the 30th. The details of this can be found on our Alumni news page.

The Zoology Department comprises eleven full-time academics, who, along with adjunct staff cover a wide range of research areas. Our work is international in scope with ongoing research in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and Ireland.
