  Testing impacts of ant-plant protection mutualisms on plant community dynamics in Papua New Guinea
  Dr T Fayle, Prof V Novotny, Dr P Klimes
Application Deadline: 28 December 2018
A highly motivated postgraduate student is sought to join a project exploring the effects of ant inhabitation of trees on plant community dynamics.
  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  Plant-insect interactions: Selecting pest-tolerant eucalypt breeds for New Zealand Forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
The New Zealand Dryland Forests Initiative (NZDFI) https://nzdfi.org.nz/ is breeding elite eucalypt species to produce high-value, naturally ground-durable (not requiring chemical treatment) timber in dryland regions of New Zealand.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Woodland Trust]
  Dr R Davies, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Woodland Trust. Scientific background. Intensive agriculture is one of the main drivers of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  Coleopteran collapse? Long-term climate and environmental change effects on beetle diversity in the British Isles
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Mr M Barclay, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Background. Insects, both as pollinators and processors, are arguably the most important parts of our ecosystems. Recent studies have shown an overall pattern of significant decline in abundance and diversity of insect species across much of Europe over the past century (e.g.
  Rewilding and Conservation - Insect faunas and natural grazing
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
After Vera’s seminal work on rewilding and the evidence for the importance of herbivores as part of the dynamic natural cycle, various rewilding projects across Europe have attempted to protect areas, to provide an understanding of grazing regimes of old breeds of herbivores and to collate data which may be used for conservation.
  Mine sites as hotspots for insect biodiversity PhD (Funded)
  Prof R Ffrench-Constant, Dr J Bennie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Professor Richard ffrench-Constant, University of Exeter. Dr Jon Bennie, University of Exeter. Dr Ilya Maclean, University of Exeter.
  Minimising adverse effects of conservation: Ecological consequences of restoration of salmon carcasses to upland streams (Ref IAP2-18-31)
  Prof N Metcalfe
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Salmon populations are declining and in need of active conservation measures, but how is their freshwater habitat best managed to maximise their survival? The juveniles live in uplands streams that would previously have contained many adult salmon that would have died after spawning, so releasing nutrients into an otherwise nutrient-poor environment.
  The socio-ecology of keeping Britain tidy: biodiversity conservation and the aesthetics of unruly landscapes
  Dr G Holmes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Many species of conservation value depend on particular ecological niches, which can be narrow, and the flourishing of these species depends on having sufficient quality and quantity of such habitats.
