Hindcasting faunal distributions in the Holocene to understand interactions between ancient societies, biodiversity and climate

BACKGROUND. Faced with the urgent challenge of predicting the consequences of current and future climate change, it is imperative that we seek to learn lessons about climate-animal-human relations from the long-term records available from the past. Read more

Using soil microbes for biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes

Soil microbes | Plant-parasitic nematodes | Plant defences | Biological control. Plants naturally exploit the soil microbiome by recruiting beneficial microbes that aid plants to rapidly adapt to changing abiotic and biotic conditions. Read more

Characterising and delaying the early signs of ageing

Understanding the biology of ageing remains one of the most enduring challenges in 21st century science. Most, (but not all) organisms undergo ageing, which is typically defined as a decline in biological function over time. Read more

Can polar seabirds really adapt to climate change?

The ability of animals to adapt to their environment is crucial for populations to persist in a changing climate. However, we know that the environment changes not only in the average conditions, but also in how variable those conditions are. Read more

Exploring the unintended consequences of zero-deforestation oil palm

Background. Concerns about the loss of tropical rainforests have led companies to make zero-deforestation commitments (ZDCs) to reduce carbon emissions and biodiversity losses due to tropical commodities, such as palm oil. Read more

How does the environment impact female control of fertilisation?

In internally-fertilising animals, the female reproductive tract is the arena in which sperm compete to fertilise eggs. This provides females with enormous potential to control fertilisation after mating, and a female’s anatomy, physiology and behaviour can all work together to select some sperm over others.

The success of strategic restoration for pollinator connectivity

Climate change threatens the sustainability of the pollination service, on which our food supply and all ecosystems depend. One way to tackle this challenge is to expand, improve and connect up wildflower-rich habitats. Read more
