Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

PhD Studentship in Ecology - Investigating the assembly of plant and animal communities following wildfire: an ecological network approach

Overview. Wildfire naturally drives biodiversity patterns globally through heterogeneous disturbance regimes (Kelly & Brotons 2017), but there is growing evidence that climate change (and a range of other factors) is increasing wildfire frequency and severity in many parts of the world (Flannigan et al.

PhD Studentship: Exploiting viral ecology to combat problem organisms in biological wastewater treatment

Overview. In nature, viruses drive bacterial abundance, activity, and community composition. they are responsible for up to 100% of bacterial mortality every day, severely affecting ecosystem function. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions

Proposed Start Date. September 2022. The body is home to trillions of microbes. There has been a surge of interest on the effects of these microbes on host health, often as agents of infectious disease. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans. Read more
