Department of Zoology


Enabling our zoology students to make the best possible use of their time here.

John Treherne was, during his time at Cambridge (1955-1989), one of the most influential and charismatic members of the Department of Zoology: a brilliant scientist, a much-valued colleague, and an exceptional mentor.  He became a touchstone for the Department’s collegiality and welcoming friendliness, which remain core values of the Department today.

As a tribute to John and the important values that he promoted, we have set up a fund in his memory, which we will use to support students studying Zoology at all levels in the University. The most urgent requirement right now is to provide financial support that will enable students to attend the Part II Tropical Field Course, regardless of their financial circumstances. Field work, in the tropics or indeed anywhere, was one of John’s many enthusiasms.
