  Reassembly of soil food web structure, stability and functioning during forest restoration in New Zealand
  Dr A Barnes
Application Deadline: 18 December 2018
Ecological restoration is vital for repairing human impacts on native biota and ecosystem processes.
  The Complexity and Structure of Food Web Networks
  Dr A Beckerman, Dr M Pocock
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The complexity and structure of food web networks underpin our understanding of biodiversity and the stability, persistence and functioning of ecological communities.
  Understanding disease dynamics in krill, a key species in the Antarctic food web, Biosciences – PhD (Funded)
  Dr M van der Giezen
Application Deadline: 30 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Mark van der Giezen, University of Exeter. Dr Kelly Bateman, Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round
The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Microplastics as a Vector for Micropollutants in Aquatic Environments
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Prof C Moffat
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Background. Any plastic particle that measures less than 5 mm in all dimensions is considered to be a microplastic.
  Biodiversity and ecosystem services: Birds, bats, bees, and cocoa trees
  Dr A Welch, Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Human populations are increasing rapidly and consumption is intensifying. Land is being cleared at a dramatic pace and biodiversity, which provides critical ecosystem services, is being lost at an unprecedented rate.
  Arctic-and-alpine-river-food-web-response-to-glacier-retreat
  Prof L Brown, Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Climate change poses a considerable threat to the biodiversity of high altitude ecosystems, with Arctic alpine regions across the world already beginning to show clear responses to warming (Milner et al., 2017).
  Response of ringed seal populations to environmental change in the Canadian Arctic
  Dr R Jeffreys, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr SC Smout, Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing unprecedented rates of environmental change, warming twice as fast as the global average (Hoegh-Guldberg and Bruno, 2010).
  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.
  Understanding the ecology and biogeochemistry of midwater ecosystems
  Dr K Cook, Dr D Mayor, Dr B Ward
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The mesopelagic zone of the ocean (~50-1000 m beneath the surface), often referred to as the ‘twilight zone’, remains one of the most poorly understood ecosystems on Earth.
