Tracey’s research aims to understand ecological patterns in mammals, specifically what the ecological and evolutionary consequences are of being a certain size, adopting a foraging or locomotory strategy. She is interested in understanding the trade-offs between physiology, life history and environment balanced against phylogeny and past history. Her work spans a range of mammal species and biological techniques, including analysis of isotopes to discern environmental and dietary influences, marine mammal microbiomes and acoustic signalling.
