Welcome

After a decade of being based at Bangor University in the UK, the marecotec research group (short for marine ecology and technology) moved to the University of Rhode Island (USA) in August 2018. The research group  focusses on the spatial ecology of marine ecosystems, primarily reefs, using a mixture of natural history observation, experimentation and novel technologies to untangle the ecology of these enigmatic habitats.

Headed by Andy Davies, an ecologist who specialises in using computational and technological approaches to enhance our understanding of ecological patterns in time and space, we have conducted research projects all over the world. Ranging from the temperate intertidal, to warm tropical waters and even the deepest and darkest depths of our oceans.
