Professor Nick Davies

Professor Nick Davies is Professor of Behavioural Ecology at the University of Cambridge.

An ornithologist and field naturalist, he has accompanied many previous alumni tours to great success. His research concerns the study of how behaviour evolves in response to selection pressures from ecology and the social environment.

His current work focusses on the interactions between cuckoos and their hosts, and Professor Davies has recently published Cuckoo: cheating by nature (Bloomsbury), as well as having previously co-authored a number of definitive primers on Behavioural Ecology.
