  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
