(BBSRC DTP) The evolution of odorant receptors in the domestication of Aedes mosquitoes: the link to zoonotic disease emergence

Manmade environmental change has triggered adaptation to domestic habitats in several pest species, including mosquitoes. As well as being of fundamental biological interest, the evolutionary process of domestication also results in the transmission of formerly zoonotic diseases of wildlife to livestock and humans.

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) The Eco-mechanics of Mammalian Combat

Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s evocative phrase ‘Nature, red in tooth and claw’ has often been associated with the evolutionary process (Dawkins 1976) and intra-specific conflict is a key aspect for understanding the mechanisms of natural and sexual selection (Smith and Price 1973). Read more

Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping organic and inorganic chemistry with ageing in bone tissue

Bone plays vital roles in the body. Structurally, through supporting body movement and protection of internal organs, and chemically, acting as a reservoir of minerals, blood cell production and molecules for endocrine regulation. Read more

Attributing Extreme Weather Events to Climate Change: Practices, Perceptions and Policies

  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
“Climate change means more extreme weather” is a common headline. The potential and serious effects of anthropogenic climate change are often communicated through this soundbite. Read more

Macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion

  Research Group: Interdisciplinary Centre for Ancient Life
PhD research in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones investigating macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion. The lab uses a combination of quantitative shape analysis, biomechanics, and macroevolutionary analyses to understand major transitions in the evolution of mammals and their extinct relatives.
