QUADRAT DTP: Genome-wide diversity and demographic history of relict island populations of rodents

Conservation genetics theory predicts that when a few founding individuals colonise a vacant habitat they will experience a reduction in genetic diversity through the effects of genetic drift which can compromise the viability of the population and limit its capacity to adapt to the new environmental conditions.

Addressing social and ecological barriers to improve shark conservation in the UK

Overexploitation of marine ecosystems has resulted in many global shark populations becoming heavily depleted 1,2,3. These population declines are largely attributed to overfishing4 and have resulted in considerable ecological ramifications5. Read more

Understanding drivers of disease in the red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), a threatened UK native species

The red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is an iconic species of notable conservation concern in the UK, having suffered a marked range contraction over the last century due to habitat loss, and competition and pathogen transmission from the introduced grey squirrel (S. Read more

Anthropogenic change and disease susceptibility in poison frogs: identifying links with diet, skin alkaloids, and the microbiome

Anthropogenic disturbance, coupled with climate change, is a leading cause of biodiversity loss. In Ecuador, approximately 97% of the Chocó biodiversity hotspot is now deforested, underscoring the need to understand and predict species’ responses to Anthropogenic change. Read more
