  Antarctic benthic Mollusca: biodiversity, community and functional group structure in habitats influenced by varying ice-cover and the Weddell Gyre
  Dr K Linse, Dr P Fenberg, Dr H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.
  Carbon fluxes in mangrove – seagrass ecosystems
  Prof J Dash, Dr V Byfield, Dr C Evans, Dr A Lichtschlag
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Mangroves are an important and unique costal ecosystem. The carbon storage potential of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems is widely recognized [1].
  Comparative study of anemones from distinct thermal habitats: Highlighting the impact of geographic isolation in promoting evolution of thermal resistant genotypes
  Dr V Modepalli, Prof J Wiedenmann, Prof C Brownlee
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Acquisition of phototrophic endosymbionts constitutes a key ecological innovation in the evolution of corals, permitting these animals to flourish in oligotrophic waters.
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve sustainability of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr J.L. Snaddon, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity tropical areas, alongside a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge in many countries with tropical climates.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh, Mr M Soh, Dr C L Puan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Investigating the North America/South America plate boundary with marine geophysical data
  Dr T Henstock, Prof J Collier, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental plates are well-known to deform over broad areas but oceanic plates are often thought of as rigid blocks with narrow boundaries.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Palaeophysiology: metabolism and metabolic evolution of ammonites and belemnites
  Dr C Trueman, Prof R Twitchett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. An animal’s metabolic rate (the sum total of chemical activity powering life) is one of the most powerful predictors of ecological performance, co-varying with life history traits such as growth rate, fecundity, activity levels and, in ectotherms, environmental thermal tolerance.
