PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of wildlife trade on tropical biodiversity

Wildlife trade is a core driver of the global extinction crisis, with the epicentre of traded species diversity in the tropics. Key questions remain about how wildlife trade impacts species populations and, in turn, the long-term sustainability of trade. Read more

Harnessing people power for hedgehogs: Using predictors of hedgehog abundance across an urban-rural gradient to inform conservation strategies

Despite uncertainty over the absolute population size of hedgehogs in the UK, it is widely accepted that their numbers have declined significantly over recent decades, and it is estimated that numbers have halved in rural landscapes and decreased by a third in urban areas over the last 20 years.

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more

PhD Studentship in Ecology - Investigating the assembly of plant and animal communities following wildfire: an ecological network approach

Overview. Wildfire naturally drives biodiversity patterns globally through heterogeneous disturbance regimes (Kelly & Brotons 2017), but there is growing evidence that climate change (and a range of other factors) is increasing wildfire frequency and severity in many parts of the world (Flannigan et al.
