Steve Portugal


Steve Portugal is a comparative ecophysiologist. The common theme of his work focuses on how animals adapt their behaviour and ecology to the challenges of their environment, within the constraints of their own physiological and anatomical limitations. Such questions are particularly important in the light of global environmental change and exploitation of natural resources, in the emerging field of conservation physiology.

From September, Steve will commence his new position as Associate Professor of Animal Behaviour at the University of Oxford and St Hugh’s College.
