SCENARIO - Understanding freshwater ecosystem health from a microbial perspective (SC2023_38)

This project is based at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Wallingford. Freshwater environments are exposed to a variety of stressors that contribute to the decline of freshwater species, ecosystems, and the services they provide. Read more

The effect of acoustic pollution on freshwater soundscapes and stonefly mate selection

Human-made acoustic pollution is ubiquitous in today’s global ecosystems. We now have some understanding how terrestrial and marine ecosystems are affected by human-generated noise, whilst our knowledge on the effects on freshwater ecosystems is sparse. Read more

Impact of toxic metal contamination on freshwater snails using an ecogenomics approach: lessons for future mitigation of freshwater resources.

Project Outline. This multidisciplinary project will investigate the effects of toxic metal contamination in freshwater ecosystems in South Africa and will provide essential data on downstream freshwater pollution for future mitigation measures. Read more

FULLY FUNDED - Identifying the genetic basis of local adaptation in a keystone freshwater species

'TO APPLY PLEASE CLICK ON INSTITUTION WEBSITE LINK'. Understanding the genetic basis of adaptive phenotypic variation and ultimately fitness is a major aim of evolutionary biological research, as it helps us understand the origins of biodiversity and the ability of species to adapt to environmental changes.

Beavers and climate change mitigation in freshwater systems

The reintroduction of beavers has been a conservation success story repeated across Europe and North America. By damming small rivers and creating pools, ponds and canals, beavers have restored lost ecosystem services such as. Read more

Effects of neuroactive chemicals on freshwater ecosystems

Project Outline. Although we know neuroactive chemicals are pervasive in the environment, it is a major challenge to understand their effects beyond those at the level of the individual organism. Read more

Freshwater storage at the “roof of the world” under climate change

The Tibetan Plateau, commonly known as the “the roof of the world”, supplies freshwater for nearly two billion people. Water storage is crucial in determining hydrologic transport and water availability but is highly sensitive to climate change. Read more
