Wildlife disease

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical and statistical models are important tools in wildlife biology. For wildlife disease, they are particularly useful in evaluating vaccination or population management strategies in endangered species (e.g. Read more

Puffinosis: a 112 year old mysterious and deadly disease of Manx shearwaters

Seabirds are experiencing widespread decline; 28% of species are considered globally threatened. Mass mortality events in seabird colonies in 2021 and 2022 due to (H5N1) Avian Influenza have highlighted how crucial monitoring of wildlife diseases is to the conservation of already threatened species.

QUADRAT DTP: Determining Buffalo behaviour, movement, disease and energy costs to assist their management and conservation

Human population growth drives food demand requiring additional land for its production. Consequent human encroachment into wildlife habitats, illegal poaching and increased human/wildlife contact are key drivers of biodiversity loss. Read more

Understanding drivers of disease in the red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), a threatened UK native species

The red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is an iconic species of notable conservation concern in the UK, having suffered a marked range contraction over the last century due to habitat loss, and competition and pathogen transmission from the introduced grey squirrel (S. Read more

Quantifying biodiversity benefits and disease disbenefits from woodland creation projects

Background. Woodland creation projects and ecological networks for nature (eg Natural England Nature Networks) are increasing in the UK under government policies to increase tree planting for climate change mitigation and to promote biodiversity by enabling species dispersal and movements.

EASTBIO: Understanding the epidemiology of pathogen transmission across the human-wildlife-livestock interface using environmental surveillance and metagenomics

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. Environmentally transmitted pathogens are responsible for some of the most important zoonoses and livestock diseases in the world. Read more

Disease transmission and management scenarios in Afroalpine carnivores

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. Canid diseases are a particular and growing concern for the conservation of many wildlife populations, as free-ranging domestic dogs act increasingly as vectors of rabies and canine distemper viruses. Read more

Improving sustainable parasite control in British dairy cattle

The dairy industry is an essential part of UK food security. It faces an increased focus on sustainable farming practices which aim to reduce negative, and promote positive, environmental impacts whilst maintaining high levels of food production, food safety and animal welfare standards. Read more

Patterns and processes underlying genetic and adaptive variation in the Namaqua rock mouse (Micaelamys namaquensis) from southern Africa

Small mammals provide important ecosystem services as pollinators and seed dispersers (Jones and Safi 2011). They also aerate soil, regulate insect populations, support forest regeneration and are a food source for snakes, bird of prey and carnivores (Pearce & Venier 2005). Read more

The impact of resources on parasite transmission in wildlife communities

Habitat modification has profound effects on ecosystems, altering the quantity and distribution of resources in the environment. One overlooked way that changes in environmental resources impact biodiversity is through effects on the parasites circulating within those communities. Read more

Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

EASTBIO: Environmental DNA approaches for the assessment of bovine tuberculosis in park and wild deer

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) infections in wild and park deer is a problem of increasing concern in Britain that could be further exacerbated by future changes in land use and management as a result of climate change and biodiversity loss. Read more
