The biology of Mesozoic birds

Project Rationale. The Mesozoic bird Confuciusornis sanctus lived in one of the most complex ecosystems of the Early Cretaceous, alongside many dinosaurs, but its life history today remains poorly understood. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - A global analysis of the effectiveness of Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas for conserving the world's birds

A major challenge for conservation is to identify important sites to efficiently safeguard biodiversity. The largest systematically identified network of important sites for conserving species is BirdLife International’s Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) network. Read more

Assessing the global impacts of island bird extinctions

Islands have long fascinated and inspired ecologists and biologists given the large amounts of diversity they support (20% of global species in 3.5% of the land), including large numbers of unique endemic species found nowhere else. Read more

Understanding the role of mosquito vectors in food webs of African birds and bats

Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on the planet, due to their role as vectors of diseases like malaria and dengue. While progress has been made in understanding the ecology of the mosquitoes themselves, there are still many gaps to fill. Read more

Assessing the costs of building in birds

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Building an appropriate nest is key to reproductive success for most birds. Indeed nests themselves are familiar objects, while their contents (eggs and then chicks) are not just familiar but have been a focus for considerable investigation. Read more

Citizen science and the ecology of garden birds and mammals

Background. Globally, urbanisation represents a major process of landscape-scale habitat change. Urbanisation is typically associated with both reductions in biodiversity and altered patterns of species’ behaviour. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Multitrophic responses to multitrophic conservation interventions: non-target species responses to biological eradications on an island

Non-native alien species are one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss, especially on islands. Eradication of such species, although controversial, remains the only effective means by which to prevent extinctions and restore native island ecosystem functioning. Read more

Determining favourable conservation status for the UK’s birds: creating population targets to conserve biodiversity

Background.  The conservation of species in the current biodiversity and climate change crises requires the setting of population targets for species of conservation concern, in order that actions can be taken to ensure and retain healthy populations. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Woodland-mediated predator impacts on open ground birds

Lead Supervisor: Dr C Beale (University of York Department of Biology). Co-supervisor/s:  Dr Karl Evans (University of Sheffield), Dr David Douglas (RSPB), Dr Scott Newey (James Hutton Institute). Read more
