The impact of diet on fertility: A Nutritional Geometry approach

Despite the essential role food plays in our lives, we have little understanding of how different nutrients work together to impact health and well-being, or the reasons animals, including humans, choose certain combinations of food. Read more

Endosymbionts as an overlooked threat for insect reintroductions

Background. Species reintroduction - or augmentation - into restored habitat will be increasingly used to combat biodiversity loss in a rapidly changing world, and used for a wider range of taxa, including invertebrates. Read more

Starlings as vectors and reservoirs of disease

Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are a widespread avian species found in close association with human developments and agriculture. In the UK, the majority of starlings are resident all year round and their breeding season takes place from March to April. Read more

Distribution, expansion and impacts of non-native invasive small mammals

Non-native invasive species have negative impacts on native biodiversity across multiple taxa and trophic levels most notably on islands where more ecologically niches remain vacant than on adjacent mainland regions. Read more

Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response. Read more

Solitary and social bees’ cognition: is there a difference?

Applications are invited for a self-funded PhD project to investigate cognitive skills in solitary and social bees. The supervisors will be Dr Gema Martin-Ordas and Dr Mario Vallejo-Marin (University of Stirling). Read more
