Novel technology for endangered and invasive crayfish management

Background. Invasive non-native crayfish cause US$ 61 million a year in damage and management costs worldwide and pose a severe and increasing threat to native biodiversity as ecologically destructive omnivores and ecosystem engineers. Read more

Investigating amphibian tolerance to the skin fungal disease chytridiomycosis

*** ABOUT THE PROJECT ***. The Frog Research Team in eastern Australia (. https://www.frogresearch.com/). has a PhD opportunity available for a highly motivated applicant to study frog chytrid fungal disease (3 year PhD). Read more

Impacts of non-native invasive crayfish in tropical freshwater systems

Invasive species are a key cause of biodiversity decline in freshwater systems. Crayfish are a particularly problematic invader, with multiple species ranked amongst the worst global invaders. Read more

Unhappy Bedfellows? Interactions between the invasive species Sargassum muticum and Threatened seagrass beds (Zostera spp).

Successful invasive species often escape top-down pressure in the early stages of invasion. However, emerging evidence suggests that over time local animal consumers can adapt to control and moderate nonnatives by incorporating invading species into their diets. 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

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

Effects of seabird nutrient inputs on the productivity of coral reef fish communities

How coral reefs can sustain their extreme biomass of large reef fishes has continued to puzzle scientists. By living fast and dying young, small, bottom-dwelling (‘cryptobenthic’) reef fishes have been suggested as an important part of coral reef productivity, fuelling the foodweb. Read more

Understanding the ecology of the New Zealand black coral Antipathes fiordensis and its vulnerability to climate change

We are looking for a dynamic, highly motivated person with excellent inter-personal skills (as you will spend time on small boats) to join the Temperate Mesophotic Ecology group at Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand. Read more
