Animal Biology is the integrated study of the enormous variety of animal life on Earth. It examines the evolutionary origins of the various animal groups and their ecology, behaviour and conservation. You can choose to focus mainly on whole animal biology and conservation, or integrate these studies with those investigating more molecular and biochemical aspects of animal biology, such as genetics, cell structure, development and physiology.

‌ Animal biologists attempt to answer important questions such as: how do animals with complex body plans develop from a single cell? Why do many female animals exhibit mate choice? What adaptations help animals cope with life in hostile environments? How do we best conserve rare and endangered animal species? The Animal Biology degree at Stirling offers an exciting and integrated course of study.
