  Smarter habitat restoration in harmony with species reintroductions – testing solutions for the Chequered Skipper
  Dr J Hodgson, Dr I J Saccheri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2018
Note short deadline - apply now for a great opportunity to inform species recovery while developing quantitative skills!. Habitat loss and degradation remain major threats to species around the world, yet habitat restoration is also enjoying significant success in places.
  Seeing the woods for the trees: do woodland networks benefit biodiversity?
  Prof K Park, Prof J Bullock, Dr Elisa Fuentes-Montemayor, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. The concept of ecological networks, and their focus on landscape-scale conservation, has been promoted globally as a key approach to biodiversity conservation in fragmented landscapes.
  Designing multi-functional landscapes to ensure well-connected ecological networks
  Prof S Hartley, Prof J K Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Conserving biodiversity and associated ecosystem services under rapid. environmental change requires landscape-scale approaches described as.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Dr M Morecroft, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  Crumbling reefs: quantifying risk of cold-water coral habitat loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the world’s oceans from 30 to 3000 m deep. The complex three-dimensional frameworks made by these vulnerable marine ecosystems support high biodiversity and commercially important species.
  Developing a conservation action plan for the critically endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr M Holderied
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Philippines is deemed the “hottest” biodiversity hotspot (Shi et al., 2005), due to high species richness across multiple ecosystems and rapid habitat conversion.
  Rewilding and Conservation - Insect faunas and natural grazing
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
After Vera’s seminal work on rewilding and the evidence for the importance of herbivores as part of the dynamic natural cycle, various rewilding projects across Europe have attempted to protect areas, to provide an understanding of grazing regimes of old breeds of herbivores and to collate data which may be used for conservation.
  Spawning habitat characteristics of lithophilic fish – using experimental approaches to inform river restoration
  Dr P Wood, Dr D Ryves, Dr A Pledger
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat Connectivity (FRANCOUENV19ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Prof CD Santos
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Biodiversity loss is one of the major challenges of the Anthropocene and the establishment of robust networks of protected areas is one of the key actions identified to address this challenge.
