ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Ants as ecosystem engineers: using ants to promote biodiversity

We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to develop an exciting project using field experiments to quantify the relationship between meadow ants and management regimes, and how these together affect biodiversity and soil function. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

Assessing the vulnerability of high-elevation plant populations to abiotic and biotic stressors predicted under climate change

Project Advert. Scientific background. Climate change threatens the persistence of high-elevation, cold-adapted plants [1], both directly via changes in temperature and precipitation and indirectly through the upward expansion of low-elevation antagonists [2]. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: How much of the wildfire record are we seeing in the fossil record?

One of the consequences of recent climate change and human disturbance is that grassland, heath, peatland and forest ecosystems are now becoming more fire prone due to higher summer temperatures and reduced precipitation which creates a water deficit. Read more

Quantifying greenhouse gas emissions in agri-ecosystems across multiple scales

  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
This exciting project will provide training for careers in sustainable agriculture. The project will develop new understanding of how grazed grassland management practices influence and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Read more
