Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans. Read more

Ancient woodlands and development-related threats: How can we develop effective, targeted mitigation to protect these valuable ‘Keepers of Time’?

Ancient woodlands provide some of Great Britain’s most biodiverse and culturally significant habitats. Current planning policy aims to protect these ‘irreplaceable’ habitats from the direct and indirect impacts of nearby development. 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

QUADRAT DTP: The evolution of sociability in subsocial animals

Animals of all kinds of species form groups. Group-living affects may ecological and evolutionary processes, such as the transmission of disease and information, the strength of predation pressure and resource competition, and the effectiveness of different forms of selection for driving evolutionary change.

QUADRAT DTP: Evolution and consequences of mating systems for range dynamics and species’ responses to environmental changes

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary processes that shape species’ geographic ranges and affect their dynamics such as expansions, contractions and shifts, is critical to understand, predict and manage species’ responses to ongoing global environmental changes. Read more

OP2329 Photogrammetry as a tool to improve reef restoration

NERC ONE Planet DTP. Coral reefs provide goods and services worth billions of dollars (Costanza et al 2014 Glob. Env. Change), and yet they are extremely vulnerable to climate change. Read more

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more
