We are an academic research group based in the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. We work at the interface of social and ecological systems, using a range of approaches to address key issues in current conservation. Our underlying philosophy is that in order to make progress we need to consider the incentives, pressures and challenges faced by individual decision-makers.
This ground-breaking collaboration will bring together one of the world’s largest and most respected conservation organisations with the cutting-edge interdisciplinary research of the Oxford Martin School, led by Professor Myles Allen, Professor Yadvinder Malhi, and Professor E.J. Milner-Gulland. More here
Computing skills are necessary to scientists of all kinds but we are running the course aimed at bringing together conservationists, geographers, ecologists, zoologists, and other environmental scientists. We will teach R, RStudio, and GitHub to script analyses, make compelling visualizations and learn collaborative workflows; no prior experience is required.
Wonderful day of Science in Oxford this weekend, see a recap here: https://twitter.com/SoapboxSciOxf/status/744805830478815232

ICCS research falls within three broad themes: incentives and attitudes of natural resource users; social-ecological system dynamics; and management of natural resource use. Read about these themes here.
Details of specific projects that members of the group are currently working on can be found in the current projects section
ICCS is a highly multidisciplinary research group and have an ever-growing publication list on a wide range of conservation science topics. We have created a reference archive that we update regularly, providing an example of what our research includes.
We also have an extensive thesis archive showcasing past MSc and PhD projects, with pdfs available for download.
