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

The impact of climate change on the thermal ecology of cold-adapted butterflies

The project will investigate how increasing temperatures are affecting northern butterflies in the UK, and test the potential for managing habitats to promote climate change adaptation. Read more

Conservation genomics of bumble bees

Project Highlights. Your research will be high impact science geared towards the conservation of bumble bees - highly important pollinators of both wild flowers and important crops. 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

The role of large mammals in determining forest structure, microclimate, and carbon storage potential

Project Background. Large mammal populations are increasing across Europe and their numbers are often controlled to realise forest restoration objectives because high browsing pressure impairs tree seedling recruitment. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Sea sparkle: identifying and predicting bioluminescent blooms

Noctiluca scintillans1 (known as “sea sparkle”) is a bioluminescent dionoflagellate, found commonly in UK coastal waters. It is sometimes associated with harmful red tides, which threaten local ecosystems and fisheries through eutrophication2. Read more
