  Responsible Investor Engagement on Extinction Prevention
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Accounting and Finance in Context (CRAFiC)
  Prof J Atkins
Applications accepted all year round
Our world is currently experiencing a sixth period of mass species extinction. Current extinction rates are estimated somewhere between a thousand and ten thousand times higher than the ‘natural’ level of extinction.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Climate change-driven extinction in planktonic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Ongoing declines in biodiversity call for accurate predictions of extinction risk arising from climate change.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Productivity crises in past and future oceans: what ancient crises tell us about future threats to marine ecosystems
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The world’s oceans and their ecosystems are under threat from anthropogenic activities that are interacting to produce complex changes like never before.
  Adapt or die - how do animals respond to changing environments?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals respond to new or changing environments? Why is it that some species can adapt or move, while others face extinction?.
  Modelling temporal changes in biodiversity as a function of land-use change in Indonesia
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Pugh, Dr NE Barrand
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The reported impacts of forest loss and land-use change are almost universally negative, and habitat loss more generally is argued to be the biggest driver of the current extinction crisis (Sala et al., 2000; Haddad et al., 2015).
  Balancing Nutritional Food Security and Biodiversity in a Globalized World (based at the University of Edinburgh)
  Dr J Ge, Dr G Polhill, Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. For many developing countries ensuring food security for its people and preserving the rich biodiversity on its untainted land are often regarded as a tradeoff.
  Time travelling as a powerful approach for the screening of biodiversity
  Dr L Orsini, Dr S He, Prof J B Brown
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Eutrophication and climate change are two of the most pressing environmental issues, affecting up to 50% of aquatic ecosystems worldwide.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT: Defining nutrient sources and fluxes driving lowland drinking water reservoir ecosystem response
  Prof P Johnes
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Nutrient enrichment of surface freshwaters is the single largest stressor on freshwater ecosystems and the services they provide, throughout the developed world.
  People, forest use and biodiversity on islands: models for global sustainability
  Dr M Dallimer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Small island states comprise some of the world’s poorest countries and are often home to extraordinary levels of endemic biodiversity at substantial risk of extinction.
