BTO's international research cuts across many of the organisation's research themes and has a broad remit, taking in classical ecological studies, as well as incorporating elements from the social and economic sciences. We operate in three broad areas – research into the ecology of long-distance migrant birds, provision of technology transfer and capacity building and research into the links between biodiversity, the natural environment and people in developing African countries.
