Metabolic drivers of health in harbour porpoises: systems physiology approach to investigating measures of resilience to a changing environment

Human activities (e.g., marine construction and fishing) have been demonstrated to significantly impact cetacean populations. This displaces animals from feeding grounds, impair foraging or directly reduce the amount of food available. Read more

Linking individual eco-physiology to lifetime fitness in an animal athlete

Long-distance migration, which is among the most dramatic phenomena in nature, places huge physiological demands on animals. Yet despite fascinating humans for millennia, how migration shapes eco-physiology and influences evolutionary processes remains poorly understood. Read more

’Wait a minute! How did it...?’ Unravelling the causes and consequences of the evolution of larval development in invertebrates (Distance Learning Project)

Invertebrates that possess modular development – composed of a larval and an adult stage that are different morpho-ecologically – appear to have been the most successful amongst all invertebrates in conquering marine and terrestrial habitats. Read more

Understanding patterns in academic colonialism in ecological research (distance learning)

Despite increasing emphasis on increasing diversity in science and representation of minorities in STEM, there is surprisingly little scientific research aiming to understand and tackle current patterns and magnitude of scientific colonialism in ecological research. Read more

Environmental Effects on Inbreeding Depression (Distance Learning Project)

Background. Inbreeding is an important issue in evolutionary biology and ecology because of its profound implications for genetic variation and the evolution of mating systems and reproductive strategies. Read more
