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

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

Puffinosis: a 112 year old mysterious and deadly disease of Manx shearwaters

Seabirds are experiencing widespread decline; 28% of species are considered globally threatened. Mass mortality events in seabird colonies in 2021 and 2022 due to (H5N1) Avian Influenza have highlighted how crucial monitoring of wildlife diseases is to the conservation of already threatened species.

The impact of resources on parasite transmission in wildlife communities

Habitat modification has profound effects on ecosystems, altering the quantity and distribution of resources in the environment. One overlooked way that changes in environmental resources impact biodiversity is through effects on the parasites circulating within those communities. Read more

Wildlife disease

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical and statistical models are important tools in wildlife biology. For wildlife disease, they are particularly useful in evaluating vaccination or population management strategies in endangered species (e.g. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) How do ecological processes shape the transmission and severity of disease in humans

Ecological processes can shape disease dynamics in humans and human populations. For example, at the ecosystem level, the distribution and abundance of insect vectors and alternative hosts can determine the frequency and severity of arbovirus outbreaks among humans. Read more

The genomic and adaptive consequences of extreme, human-mediated population decline

Human activities are placing incredible pressure on the natural world and impacting population sizes of wild organisms, but the consequences of severe population decline in the wild is poorly understood. Read more

It’s about time: the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Determining Buffalo behaviour, movement, disease and energy costs to assist their management and conservation

Human population growth drives food demand requiring additional land for its production. Consequent human encroachment into wildlife habitats, illegal poaching and increased human/wildlife contact are key drivers of biodiversity loss. Read more
