Environmental health and infectious disease: how chemical cocktails help drive emerging zoonoses in mammals

Chemical contaminants such as perfluorinated substances (PFAS) are immunotoxic, and thus may increase susceptibility to zoonotic infections like influenza, facilitating greater virus burden, mammalian adaptation and zoonotic potential. Read more

Vectors on heat islands: Assessing urbanisation and microclimatic effects on mosquito-borne disease risks

Mosquito-borne diseases increasingly threaten human and wildlife health. A nexus of globalising trade and transport, environmental changes, and burgeoning human populations are causing mosquito proliferations, biological invasions, and altering zoonotic disease risk. Read more

EVOZOOM - Evolution and Zoonotic Epidemiology of Bovine Tuberculosis

In the mid-20th , the UK introduced bTB eradication schemes, radically reducing pathogen population size, leaving signatures of a population bottleneck in Mycobacterium bovis genomes. Read more

Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Multiscale comparative analysis of habitat selection by large carnivores in northern Botswana

About 38% of Botswana’s land area is reserved for wildlife conservation (Winterbach et al., 2014), providing important habitat for large carnivores and allowing for the study of intact large carnivore guilds. Read more
