Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion. Read more

Genomics of inbreeding in Seychelles warblers

In just 50 years the global Seychelles warbler population has recovered from <30 birds on a single island, Cousin, to a population of several thousand on multiple islands thanks to a combination of habitat restoration and translocation. Read more

Models for the circulation of zoonotic viruses in bats

Bats are hosts to some of the deadliest zoonotic viruses that have emerged in the last 50 years. Yet little is known about the factors that allow those viruses to persist and circulate in bat populations without making them sick, or about the ecological drivers underlying spatiotemporal variations in spillover risk.

Evolution of transmissible cancers in Tasmanian devils

Tasmanian devils are marsupial carnivores endemic to the Australian island of Tasmania. This species is affected by two transmissible cancers, known as devil facial tumour 1 (DFT1) and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2). Read more

Whole Organism Analytics using Free-Living Nematodes

AIM. This exciting EPSRC Funded project will aim to determine the physicochemical properties of the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, a free-living worm using next-generation analytical techniques. Read more

Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Read more

VULNERABILITY OF AUSTRALIAN BATS TO WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME - HIBERNATION BIOLOGY

About the Project. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) within Western Sydney University is seeking a PhD candidate for a 3-year PhD program of research to commence in 2021 to investigate the behavioural ecology, energetics and thermal physiology of winter hibernation by Australian cave-roosting bats.
