Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. (AERG, Anglia Ruskin University). Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of wildlife trade on tropical biodiversity

Wildlife trade is a core driver of the global extinction crisis, with the epicentre of traded species diversity in the tropics. Key questions remain about how wildlife trade impacts species populations and, in turn, the long-term sustainability of trade. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of mining on tropical biodiversity

Mining is the most luctrative industry globally, with rapid expansion of mines predicted accross the tropics. This expansion will drive deforestation within the mine itself and through interaction with socio-economic development outside of the mine. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Consequences of biases in representation of drivers of change in evidence synthesis for environmental decision-making and stewardship

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. Dr Fiona Danks (World Conservation Monitoring Centre). Read more

Social and ecological impacts of rewilding projects

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. (AERG). Dr Nikoleta Jones (Department of Land Economy, Cambridge University). Read more

Investigating the impact of beekeeping on wild pollinator populations in rural Cambridgeshire

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group.  (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Olivia Norfolk. Several other members of staff with interest in this subject area could be part of the team e.g. . Read more

’Wait a minute! How did it...?’ Unravelling the causes and consequences of the evolution of larval development in invertebrates (Distance Learning Project)

Invertebrates that possess modular development – composed of a larval and an adult stage that are different morpho-ecologically – appear to have been the most successful amongst all invertebrates in conquering marine and terrestrial habitats. Read more

PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species. Read more

Greenhouse Cooling and Heating

The temperature and relative humidity in a greenhouse are two factors that have an enormous impact on plant growth, and a greenhouse with improperly managed atmospheric conditions will never operate at its full potential. Read more
