Professor Depledge's current research interests lie in three main areas: 1) he examines the biological responses of invertebrates to environmental stressors, including pollutants; 2) he is interested in how climate change is altering coastal environments and what the consequences of these changes will be for human populations; and, 3) he is interested in improving the mechanisms by which scientific evidence is taken up and used in policy making.
