QUADRAT DTP CASE: Biodegradable micro and nanoplastics as emerging environmental pollutants

The accumulation of micro-nano-plastics and the effects these have on organisms, food webs, nutrient and energy transfers, ecosystem function, and ultimately ecosystem services are a global concern. Read more

Fish with friends: The calming effect of group living in social fishes

Project Rationale. Group living is common across the animal kingdom, ranging from the tiniest insects to the largest mammals. The ubiquity of sociality suggests that it imparts several benefits to individual group members. Read more

The impact of sensory pollution on fish navigation

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. All animals use senses to gather information. However, sensory systems are not perfect and cannot always detect a clear signal. Read more

Investigating the ripple effect in larval aquatic ectotherms exposed to heat stress

Project Description. Anthropogenic climate change is manifested through waves of heat stress. While researchers are now gaining a better understanding of the molecular responses to heat stress in diverse organisms, we have identified a new gap in our knowledge. Read more

Automated prediction of health and welfare in captive fish using behaviour from video

This project aims to develop a new approach to assessing and predicting poor health and welfare n captive fish, with potential application in aquaculture, laboratories and aquariums to help inform management decisions. Read more

Three-dimensional spatial cognition in fish

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. The ability to navigate is essential to an animal’s survival and success, allowing it to find mates, forage effectively, and find its way home. Read more

Identifying the pathways that control extra-embryonic cells

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
In many animals, interactions between cells that make the animal – “embryonic progenitors”, and supporting cells that are not a part of the animal – “extra-embryonic cells”, are essential for normal embryonic development. Read more

Investigating the cell biology of Neoparamoeba perurans, a causative agent of Amoebic Gill Disease, and its endosymbiont kinetoplastid, Perkinsela.

Amoebic gill disease (AGD), caused by the opportunistic amoebozoan parasite Neoparamoeba perurans, is a major disease in salmonid aquaculture [1-3] and there is an urgent need to mitigate the impact parasitic infections have on both fish welfare and sustainable growth in the sector. Read more

MScR: Fish, predator and collective behaviour

How do animals interact in groups? What benefits and costs can this bring? What are the ecological effects of social living? How do differences between… Read more
