Percy Fitzpatrick Institute of Ornithology
The Percy FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology (affectionately known as the Fitztitute) is housed within the Biological Sciences Department. Situated at the tip of Africa, the Fitztitute is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the vast untapped biological resources of the continent. Members of the institute are committed to developing a greater understanding of these, through the training of scientists and the pursuit of primary research, from evolutionary ecology to conservation biology. The Institute is also home to the Niven Library, which holds what is probably Africa's most comprehensive Ornithology collection and reprints of the Institute's vast publication record.
