  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Sea-level change and conservation, past, present and future - QUADRAT
  Dr J Neilson, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland is a unique marine water body, a large deep inland sea connected to the open ocean by a narrow channel that creates tidal currents of speeds up to 9 knots.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ‘SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors - QUADRAT
  Dr D Green, Dr J McKinley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Something in the wind...reconstructing the position and strength of the Southern Hemisphere Westerly winds - QUADRAT
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this project is to use peat deposits in southern South America to identify long-term changes in the strength and position of the Southern Westerly winds (SWW) during the last ~2000 years.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  The palaeoenvironmental history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the sub-canopy layers - QUADRAT
  Dr J E Schofield, Dr G Plunket
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD studentship will apply palaeoecological techniques to investigate long-term changes in the composition and dynamics of ancient broadleaved woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, thereby producing information that will guide the conservation and restoration of these vegetation communities.
  The socioecological drivers of tourist decisions and their influence on wildlife tourism sustainability
  Dr D Lusseau, Dr S Cerroni
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
An ever-increasing number of people use nature for recreation and tourism across all ecoregions. Those activities now threaten the conservation of 5930 species and marine coastal regions are particularly affected (Lusseau & Mancini 2018).
  Towards integrated adaptive management of an endangered elasmobranch in the North East Atlantic.
  Dr C S Jones, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Increasing use is made of marine protected areas (MPAs) to locally manage and conserve marine biodiversity. Although highly mobile, with complex temporal and spatial movement patterns, many endangered elasmobranchs show site association to critical habitats at important life history stages.
  Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply.
