Evolution of symbiosis in a warmer world

Project Rationale. The major bio-limiting nutrients in low to mid-latitude surface waters are nitrogen and phosphorous and their availability through time likely played a major role in evolution. Read more

Disentangling the Genotype Palaeoproxy Challenge in the Humboldt Current System and Beyond.

During this PhD you will collect and work with marine planktonic foraminifera from the Humboldt Current System (HCS) off Chile. You will acquire skills in molecular biology (genotyping and metabarcoding), geochemistry (laser ablation) and electron microscopy to develop understanding of the HCS through time. Read more

Testing the links between mass extinctions, volcanism and ocean chemistry

Why do some large volcanic eruptions create mass extinctions whilst others don’t? There is an emerging link between volcanically driven mass extinctions, such as those at the Permo-Triassic boundary and the end-Triassic, the development of anoxia, and low concentrations of sulfate in the oceans (He et al, 2020).

Environmental controls on calcification of phytoplankton from the geological record

Why are the oceans supersaturated with respect to calcium carbonate? Foraminifera and coccolithophores generate over 2 billion tonnes of carbonate/yr1 but what limits this production? Our lack of understanding of the response of pelagic calcification to environmental change hinders any predictions of the future ocean carbon cycle and ecosystem. Read more
