  PhD in Geography & Earth Science: Anthropogenic biodiversity and geodiversity – can legacy industrial waste help offset falling global biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Biodiversity is usually associated with rural/’natural’/’pristine’/’untamed’ landscapes. Urban landscapes tend not to be thought of as being biodiverse and often aren’t.
  How does urbanisation shape biodiversity? Integrating spatial and temporal dimensions
  Research Group: Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine
  Dr D Dominoni, Dr R Mancy, Dr S Spatharis, Prof J Matthiopoulos
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Urbanisation is one of the most pervasive forms of habitat change. More than half of the world’s human population now resides in urban areas, and urban land cover is projected to triple between 2000 and 2030.
  Finding the Feel-Good Factor: Relating Human Subjective Wellbeing to Biodiversity
  Dr Z Davies
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
We live in a time of profound environmental change. Phenomena such as urbanisation and agricultural intensification are degrading ecosystems and decreasing biodiversity.
  Linking sustainable land management with biodiversity conservation in Nepal
  Prof L Stringer, Dr M Dallimer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Land degradation and biodiversity loss are important environmental challenges that directly affect human livelihoods and development.
  People, forest use and biodiversity on islands: models for global sustainability
  Dr M Dallimer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Small island states comprise some of the world’s poorest countries and are often home to extraordinary levels of endemic biodiversity at substantial risk of extinction.
  How does woodland creation influence below-ground biodiversity, and soil and ecosystem functions?
  Prof K Park, Dr E Vanguelova, Dr C Wilson, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
This PhD will examine how woodland creation influences below-ground biodiversity, soil stabilisation, long term carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, and the time-scales required for the development of these processes.
  Balancing Nutritional Food Security and Biodiversity in a Globalized World (based at the University of Edinburgh)
  Dr J Ge, Dr G Polhill, Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. For many developing countries ensuring food security for its people and preserving the rich biodiversity on its untainted land are often regarded as a tradeoff.
  Evaluating biodiversity offsets in environmental impact assessment (BONDA2U19SF)
  Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
‘Biodiversity offsets’ are a means of delivering a form of compensation for biodiversity loss so that there is an overall outcome of ‘no net loss’ from development (Rajvanshi et al., 2011, Brownlie et al., 2013).
  Landscape composition and carbon-biodiversity co-benefits in the Tropical Andes
  Dr D Edwards, Prof R Freckleton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Deforestation is a key driver of global climate change and the biodiversity extinction crisis. However, the financial resources available to tackle both issues are limited, indicating an urgent need to identify actions that address them concurrently.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
