Showing 1 to 10 of 21
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
  Evolution in action: using museum DNA to understand disease resistance in island birds (RICHARDSONUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with IPNA-CSIC]
  Prof D S Richardson, Dr L Spurgin, Dr B Emerson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Many natural populations are facing a “double threat” of reduced genetic diversity and new pathogen challenges. Therefore, understanding how hosts adapt to pathogens in small and fragmented populations has important ramifications for conservation, epidemiology and evolution.
  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].
  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social organisms? (BOURKEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
  The long arm of parents: non-genetic effects on fitness, population viability and adaptive evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Dr S Immler, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Recent discoveries showed that parental environment affects offspring performance for many generations.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Woodland Trust]
  Dr R Davies, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Woodland Trust. Scientific background. Intensive agriculture is one of the main drivers of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  The use of Passive Acoustic Monitoring in biodiversity surveys  (BUTLERUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr S Butler, Dr I Barr
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is increasingly used both to monitor rare and/or nocturnal species that are often undetectable with traditional active monitoring approaches and to draw inference on biodiversity health and community structure from the characteristics of the composite soundscape.
  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Combining Evidence for Marine Monitoring (KULINSKAYAUCMP19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Prof E Kulinskaya, Dr J Barry, Dr A Bagnall
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific background. Cefas and the wider monitoring community is increasingly looking to fulfil monitoring objectives using a combination of data sources.
