  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Community assembly processes of soil ammonia oxidisers under different nitrogen use efficiency strategies
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microbial communities mediate important global biogeochemical cycles and a better understanding of the mechanisms of community assembly is therefore important.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  Towards integrated adaptive management of an endangered elasmobranch in the North East Atlantic.
  Dr C S Jones, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Increasing use is made of marine protected areas (MPAs) to locally manage and conserve marine biodiversity. Although highly mobile, with complex temporal and spatial movement patterns, many endangered elasmobranchs show site association to critical habitats at important life history stages.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
