Flower choices and pollen foraging in bees

  Research Group: EBE
Background and Research Questions. One third of crops grown worldwide benefit from pollination by insects, therefore plant-pollinator interactions are of significant importance to global food security. Read more

Cold blood in warming winters: physiological impacts of climate change on UK reptiles

Environmental change is causing temperatures to rise across the globe - how this will affect the distribution and abundance of species is therefore an important current focus for ecologists worldwide. Read more

Quantifying drivers of human-elephant conflict in an arid savanna ecosystem

The continental-range of the African elephant has been dramatically reduced and fragmented due to the rapid expansion of human settlements and agriculture, resulting in escalating conflict over access to food and water resources. Read more

Mechanics and motion of fused vertebrae during feeding in fish

Specialized anatomy can help animals adapt to new or variable environments, and lead to increased biodiversity. But since most body parts carry out multiple functions, such specializations might actually limit other functions and constrain behaviour and ecology. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Sea sparkle: identifying and predicting bioluminescent blooms

Noctiluca scintillans1 (known as “sea sparkle”) is a bioluminescent dionoflagellate, found commonly in UK coastal waters. It is sometimes associated with harmful red tides, which threaten local ecosystems and fisheries through eutrophication2. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Understanding the role of livestock management on invertebrate communities of wet pastures

The supervisory team comprises. Glyn Barrett (School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading), Robin Buxton (Patsy Wood Trust) and Ben Woodcock (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology). Read more

Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK

Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis. Read more
