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: How does the holobiome respond to climate change? Discovering how microbe-host interactions promote or hinder natural range shifts in damselflies

As climates warm, many species are now able to colonise new regions poleward of their ancestral geographic ranges. In some cases, range shifting negatively affects local communities, for instance if newcomers out-compete native residents or transmit new diseases. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Genome-wide diversity and demographic history of relict island populations of rodents

Conservation genetics theory predicts that when a few founding individuals colonise a vacant habitat they will experience a reduction in genetic diversity through the effects of genetic drift which can compromise the viability of the population and limit its capacity to adapt to the new environmental conditions.

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

QUADRAT DTP CASE: Impacts of anthropogenic environmental change on Southern Rockhopper Penguin demography and behaviour

This PhD will investigate how environmental variability influences the foraging behaviour and demographics of the Southern Rockhopper Penguin (Eudyptes chrysocome) at multiple colonies within the Falkland Islands. Read more
