Effects of forest diversity on aquatic-terrestrial linkages and processes

Tree species, functional and genetic diversity is known to mediate ecosystem processes and functioning of the forest ecosystems. However, natural ecosystems are connected to each other through the flow of species, energy and elements. Read more

Developing gregarine apicomplexans as aquatic symbiosis model system

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative, seeks to advance the understanding of aquatic symbioses that include microbial partners. Read more

The fate of microplastics in aquatic environments

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Hone novel methods to track (real-time) and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments. Read more

Predicting impact of climatic warming and its remediation on both discharge and aquatic carbon flux from an upland peat catchment

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Climatic warming has more pronounced impacts in upland areas and these areas are important for water collection, flood control and carbon storage. Remediation and adaptation measures have been developed for impacts on each of these but there is a requirement to assess interaction of these measures to maximise their overall benefit.

Ecosystem functioning: a Southern and Northern Hemisphere freshwater comparison

Project Background. Freshwater ecosystems provide key ecosystem services but are among the most threatened globally due to pollution, eutrophication, overexploitation, land-use change and invasive species (Dudgeon et al. Read more

The use of exposure models to determine pharmaceutical usage data from measured environmental concentrations

In recent years occurrence of antibiotics in aquatic systems has attracted significant attention, particularly in rivers which receive sewage treatment effluent where they have been found to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms, albeit in trace amounts. Read more

Advancing the sustainability of cities – Understanding the impacts of urban light pollution on freshwater ecosystems

Supervisory Team.   Dr. Andrew Vowles and Prof. Paul Kemp. Project description. The world has undergone wide-scale urbanisation in recent decades, and the percentage of people living in cities is predicted to grow from 30% in 1950 to 68% by 2050. Read more

Sustainability assessment of biobased surfactants by fermentation and biomass transformation

  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
This PhD project in collaboration with Holiferm Limited will assess the environmental impacts and techno-economic aspects of different types of biosurfactants, produced via a variety of pathways such as fermentation and biomass transformation, and compare these to traditional chemical surfactants in a consistent way – allowing for fair and even evaluation of the environmental profiles/benefits.
