  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).
  Navigating fragmented tropical landscapes; understanding how forest fragmentation affects bird behaviour
  Dr D Dent, Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Over the last century much of the tropical forest biome has been converted from continuous tracts of undisturbed forest to complex human-modified landscapes composed of degraded primary forest fragments, secondary forest, pasture and agricultural land [1,2].
  Constraining the carbon balance of intact tropical forest landscapes
  Dr T Baker, Dr D Galbraith, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Intact tropical forests play a key role in determining the rate of climate change, as they can act as either a significant sink, or potentially source, of carbon.
  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.
  Dormouse conservation and woodland management.
  Prof R McDonald, Prof M Bruford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Hedges and edges: landscape effects on forest biodiversity and ecosystem function.
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof W E Kunin, Dr G Ziv
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Forests represent the native climax vegetation of most of Britain and Europe, and are important both for the distinctive set of species they protect and the diverse range of important ecosystem services they provide.
  Investigating the effects of environmental change on tropical montane bats
  Dr K Peh, Dr O Razgour
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia, particularly in Malaysia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  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.
  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
  Quantifying the impact of beaver reintroduction on aquatic ecology. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Geography
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Elliot Mark, Devon Wildlife Trust. Professor Jim Freer, University of Bristol.
