Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more

Fully-funded ACCE Biology project: Genetic consequences of climate change-induced range shifts in Aricia butterflies

Lead supervisor. Dr Kanchon Dasmahapatra (University of York Department of Biology). Co-supervisors. Dr Rachel Pateman (University of York Department of Environment & Geography) Dr David Roy (CEH) Simon Duffield (Natural England). Read more

Evolution of sex chromosomes in plants

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. While most animal species are usually comprised of separate male and female individuals, plant mating systems are far more diverse, with multiple independent origins of separate sexes (dioecy) from ancestral hermaphroditic state.

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

Pathogen and parasite community ecology in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
We will use a natural community of multiple species of Drosophila - in the lab and from the wild - to understand determinants of pathogen and parasite prevalence, host range, and host switching. Read more
