The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form. Read more

Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. (AERG, Anglia Ruskin University). Read more

Linking individual eco-physiology to lifetime fitness in an animal athlete

Long-distance migration, which is among the most dramatic phenomena in nature, places huge physiological demands on animals. Yet despite fascinating humans for millennia, how migration shapes eco-physiology and influences evolutionary processes remains poorly understood. Read more

Metabolic drivers of health in harbour porpoises: systems physiology approach to investigating measures of resilience to a changing environment

Human activities (e.g., marine construction and fishing) have been demonstrated to significantly impact cetacean populations. This displaces animals from feeding grounds, impair foraging or directly reduce the amount of food available. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of wildlife trade on tropical biodiversity

Wildlife trade is a core driver of the global extinction crisis, with the epicentre of traded species diversity in the tropics. Key questions remain about how wildlife trade impacts species populations and, in turn, the long-term sustainability of trade. Read more

Consequences of biases in representation of drivers of change in evidence synthesis for environmental decision-making and stewardship

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. Dr Fiona Danks (World Conservation Monitoring Centre). Read more

Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of mining on tropical biodiversity

Mining is the most luctrative industry globally, with rapid expansion of mines predicted accross the tropics. This expansion will drive deforestation within the mine itself and through interaction with socio-economic development outside of the mine. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Social and ecological impacts of rewilding projects

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. (AERG). Dr Nikoleta Jones (Department of Land Economy, Cambridge University). Read more

Identifying policy barriers to the uptake of rewilding – a social-ecological approach

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group.  (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler.  (AERG, Anglia Ruskin University). Read more

PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species. Read more

Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group. (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Alvin Helden. Several other members of Biology staff with interest in this subject area could be part of the team e.g.,. Read more
