Harnessing technology to monitor and enable wild-type behaviour in captive parrots

Parrots (order Psittaciformes), are key species in tropical ecosystems around the world. They are important determinants of plant species richness (through seed dispersal and predation) and may play a role in pollination of trees. Read more

Life at the limits – algal physiology under extreme conditions

Summary. This project will characterise the limits of life in cryophilic algae by studying how the growth, physiology and metabolic traits are altered in low pressure and low temperature environmental chambers. Read more

Plant-fungal coevolution and speciation on a remote oceanic island

Our understanding of how species originate (speciation) has changed considerably since Darwin's seminal work. One aspect, however, that has been ignored is the role that microbes can play in driving speciation. Read more

Climate change and wildfires in northern Canada: observations, modelling and community perspectives

Northern Canada has warmed rapidly over recent decades, at around twice the rate of global mean temperature increases. Rapid climate change is leading to extensive changes in the high latitude terrestrial environment, including observed increases in temperature extremes and precipitation patterns. Read more

Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures: Evaluating Biodiversity in polar areas (Antarctica and Arctic)

Overview. This project aims to describe marine benthic encrusting biodiversity in the polar and cold temperate regions and understand how such biodiversity has changed over time using ARMS (Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures), related settlement panel technologies and eDNA. Read more

Interaction between gelatinous zooplankton and microplastics in the Southern Ocean

Project Rationale. The occurrence of plastic pollution in the Southern Ocean has been proven in almost all environmental compartments (1) which highlights this region is not as isolated from the rest of the world as previously considered. . Read more
