Drivers and resilience of urchin barrens in UK kelp forests (OP2240)

Kelp forests cover 25% of global coastlines and are considered some of the most productive habitats on Earth. They provide a complex 3D habitat supporting high levels of diversity and provide ecosystem services to human society. Read more

Microfibres in soils: detection, degradation and impact (OP2233)

Project Description. Microplastic pollution is rightly a global concern. One of the major sources of microplastic pollution has been shown to be clothing and other textile items comprised from synthetic microfibres. Read more

Determining favourable conservation status for the UK’s birds: creating population targets to conserve biodiversity

Background.  The conservation of species in the current biodiversity and climate change crises requires the setting of population targets for species of conservation concern, in order that actions can be taken to ensure and retain healthy populations. Read more

Stakeholders’ Perceived Experience for Re-Positioning the Urban Parks: Nudging for Voluntary Services and Greener Newcastle (Advert Reference: RDF22/BL/MOS/SHAMS)

Cities contribute significantly to climate change, with a major share of greenhouse gas emission originating from urban regions. Research on urban management and climate adaptation often fails to address different context-based challenges within the overall urban management dynamics (Kythreotis et al., 2020). Read more

Trees to mitigate the climate change impacts of poultry (OP2225)

Since 70% of UK land and 37% globally is used for agriculture, climate change action must include agriculture. However, agriculture is one of the most difficult sectors to abate, and under some estimates could represent half UK emissions by 2050. Read more

Hindcasting faunal distributions in the Holocene to understand interactions between ancient societies, biodiversity and climate

BACKGROUND. Faced with the urgent challenge of predicting the consequences of current and future climate change, it is imperative that we seek to learn lessons about climate-animal-human relations from the long-term records available from the past. Read more

Defining sustainable sand mining rates through the lens of freshwater biodiversity loss (OP2210)

Humans are the biggest movers of sediment on the planet (Mϋller et al., 2013). Our demand for development minerals such as sand, gravel and aggregate has been increasing since the 1970s such that today it is estimated we extract ~50,000 Million Tonnes every year (Bendixen et al., 2021; Torres et al., 2021).
