How do coral energy strategies influence their survival?

Most tropical reef-building corals are mixotrophic, acquiring autotrophic nutrition from their photosynthetic algal endosymbionts and heterotrophic nutrition via predation of plankton. Read more

Impacts of environmental change on UK coastal ecology for nature based solutions

Project Rationale. Nature-based solutions (NbS) to natural hazards and environmental change offer the potential to protect, sustainably manage and restore natural or modified ecosystems whilst also providing benefits for health, the economy and society. Read more

Addressing social and ecological barriers to improve shark conservation in the UK

Overexploitation of marine ecosystems has resulted in many global shark populations becoming heavily depleted 1,2,3. These population declines are largely attributed to overfishing4 and have resulted in considerable ecological ramifications5. Read more

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

Ocean Soundscapes in a Changing World

The oceans are full of sound, with a vast array of intentional (e.g., communication) and incidental (e.g., feeding) sounds produced by marine mammals, fish and invertebrates, as well as an increasing contribution of noise emanating from human activities. Read more

Marine ecosystem responses to past climate change and its oceanographic impacts

Project Rationale. Earth’s oceans are warming and losing dissolved oxygen due to human activity. Experiments on modern animals show that the combined impacts of seawater oxygen and temperature are a substantial environmental threat to animal ecosystems. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Unveiling the environmental and genetic drivers of continuous colour variation in the European sea lemon (Doris pseudoargus)

Animal colouration is fascinating and it plays a vital role in communication, reproduction and defence. Defensive colouration is particularly intriguing, with some species showing extensive colour variation across their range in response to predation. Read more
