Assessing the impacts of aquaculture and pesticide use in a protected tropical wetland (Loktak Lake, India)

Loktak Lake, located in Manipur, is the largest freshwater lake in NE India, declared a Ramsar site in 1990. It is divided into three main basins which have different land use practices by local populations, with the southern being in the Keibul Lamjao National Park. Read more

Impacts of non-native invasive crayfish in tropical freshwater systems

Invasive species are a key cause of biodiversity decline in freshwater systems. Crayfish are a particularly problematic invader, with multiple species ranked amongst the worst global invaders. Read more

Using ecological theory and data to improve industry's measurement of Biodiversity Net Gain

Rapid rate of biodiversity loss, and growing awareness of impacts on human wellbeing, has resulted in policies that infrastructure development should deliver a Net Gain in biodiversity. Read more

Unhappy Bedfellows? Interactions between the invasive species Sargassum muticum and Threatened seagrass beds (Zostera spp).

Successful invasive species often escape top-down pressure in the early stages of invasion. However, emerging evidence suggests that over time local animal consumers can adapt to control and moderate nonnatives by incorporating invading species into their diets. 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

Exploiting big data to understand access to greenspace in the UK

Greenspaces provide incredible valuable benefits to people. For example, there are over 62,000 urban greenspaces in Great Britain, estimated to provide just over £130 billion to those living nearby. 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
