  Navigating fragmented tropical landscapes; understanding how forest fragmentation affects bird behaviour
  Dr D Dent, Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Over the last century much of the tropical forest biome has been converted from continuous tracts of undisturbed forest to complex human-modified landscapes composed of degraded primary forest fragments, secondary forest, pasture and agricultural land [1,2].
  Identifying the mechanisms linking savannah degradation and bird distribution change
  Dr C Beale, Prof S Hartley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Degradation of savannahs threatens both biodiversity and pastoralist. communities who depend on them. Some 15% of northern Tanzanian savannahs.
  Is biodiversity good for your health? Birds as bioindicators of Lyme disease risk in the environment.
  Dr B Tschirren, Dr S Perkins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Climate impacts on terrestrial nomadic birds of the Australian interior
  Dr S G Willis, Dr R Fuller
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. Australia experienced during 2010-11 rainfall of a scale and intensity that was unprecedented in recorded history, driven by the strongest La Niňa weather pattern since 1917.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Cooperation, conflict and the coordination of care in a social bird
  Prof B J Hatchwell, Dr S Patrick, Dr A Beckerman
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Parents often cooperate to care for offspring, but sexual conflict over the amount of care that each provides is inevitable because the selfish interests of parents differ.
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  Workers and Shirkers: Alternative Life-history Trajectories in a Cooperatively Breeding Kalahari Bird, NERC GW4+, PhD in Biosciences studentship.
  Dr A Young, Dr A Wilson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
