  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The effect of extreme climatic change on insect-plant interactions during the Jurassic
  Dr B Caswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The increases in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (pCO2), that are associated with climate change, cause decreases in the nutritional value of plants to the herbivorous insects that feed upon them.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Declines in insect populations: consequences for parasites
  Dr P Mayhew, Prof C Dytham
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Insect populations may be declining over large areas of the planet. Recently, gene sequencing studies have suggested that a sizeable.
  Woodland insect responses to climate change
  Dr S Hayward, Dr J P Sadler, Dr C Pfrang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Forest/woodland systems are major source of biodiversity globally and also play a crucial role in carbon capture/mitigating against rising CO2 levels.
  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.
  Sensitivity of aquatic insect eggs to elevated fine sediment and phosphate concentrations in rivers
  Dr M Johnson, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Insect populations are declining at an alarming rate, globally. Aquatic insects have a crucial functional role in the environment and are used to monitor stream impairment.
  The establishment of novel insect biodiversity in Britain
  Prof C Thomas, Dr H Roy, Dr A Salisbury
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Enrol for a PhD at the University of York to investigate how insect biodiversity is. changing in Britain. You will carry out a mixture of empirical field research,.
  Predicting African insect crop pests in real-time
  Dr S White, Dr C Cobbold, Dr P Gonzalez-Moreno, Dr S Murphy
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Crop pests are of serious and growing concern throughout Africa, causing significant economic and dietary impacts on humans and livestock.
  Re-thinking insect adaptation to Antarctica’s extreme environments
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Antarctica has been isolated from the other Southern Hemisphere continents for at least 28 million years (Myr). Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice.
  How does climate influence insect responses to pesticides? – A key question for food security
  Dr S Hayward, Dr N J Hodges, Dr L Orsini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. As poikilotherms the body temperature of insects is directly determined by environmental conditions. Thus, microclimate temperature profiles, which are often highly variable, will dictate rates of metabolic activity and development as well as behaviour.
