Conservation genomics of manta and devil rays

Project Background. Manta and devil rays (collectively mobulids) are charismatic and ecologically important marine megafauna with high ecotourism value (O’Malley et al., 2013; Stewart et al., 2018). Read more

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

Determine the potential for purifying and positive selection at the haploid stage (IMMLERS_U21ERC2)

Assessing the effect of purifying and positive selection in genes expressed during the haploid stage, the diploid stage or both allows for a direct quantification and comparison of the relative importance of haploid and diploid selection. 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
