In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants . They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. One of the most important questions for biodiversity conservation in the face of global climate change is whether species will adapt, acclimatise, migrate or be extirpated.
