  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Disentangling palaeodiet: Modern and archaeological case studies in compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis - QUADRAT
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The nitrogen isotope analysis of individual amino acids represents a potentially powerful tool for estimating trophic positions and the source of dietary protein in archaeological case studies.
  Does familiarity breed contempt? Seeking coexistence strategies with wolves
  Prof S Redpath, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Large carnivores are challenging to conserve. They kill livestock, threaten human life, instil fear in people, and their presence often leads to conflict between livelihood and conservation interests.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Facilitating a Natural Capital Approach in Marine Protected Area Governance in the UK - QUADRAT
  Dr T Potts, Prof A Longo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine Protected Area designation and management has significantly advanced over the past decade in the UK. In response to a range of EU, UK and devolved drivers, considerable progress has been made over the spatial protection of marine biodiversity in the inshore and offshore environment.
  Flying sentinels: using a long-distance migratory bird to assess exposure to POPs over two continents and their health consequences
  Dr P Bize, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human activities have for side effects the introduction in natural environments of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
