Restoring for a resilient future: Woodland community assembly trajectories in the face of multiple stressors

We seek a numerate, enthusiastic student with a passion for restoring woodland ecosystems and multi-disciplinary research. This project provides a unique opportunity to answer how an overlooked driver, surface-level ozone, influences above- and below-ground restoration trajectories of woodland plant communities.

Can Industrial pollution drive speciation through reinforcement?

There is clear evidence of many plant and animal species adapting rapidly to human induced environmental change, but the extent to which this will lead to speciation is very poorly understood. 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

Plant communities and climbers in degraded and regenerating forest landscapes of Borneo

Tropical forests are becoming increasingly fragmented as a result of land-use pressures. Due to different land-use histories, remnant forests are not created equal; some are more structurally intact than others and this can alter the capacity for a forest to naturally regenerate. Read more

Understanding the role of nitrogen speciation in controlling the biodiversity of freshwater algal communities

The project. Freshwater ecosystems and the biodiversity they contain are among the most threatened ecosystems globally. Nutrient pollution via excessive inputs of nitrogen and phosphorus is perhaps the most significant pressure acting on these ecosystems. Read more

Tracking landslides and earthwork failures using electrical geophysics

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g. Read more

Assessing the impacts of aquaculture and pesticide use in a protected tropical wetland (Loktak Lake, India)

Loktak Lake, located in Manipur, is the largest freshwater lake in NE India, declared a Ramsar site in 1990. It is divided into three main basins which have different land use practices by local populations, with the southern being in the Keibul Lamjao National Park. Read more

The influence of groundwater and soil conditions on future flood risk of UK estuaries

The risk of flooding is changing worldwide, associated with population and socioeconomic growth, and climate change. Lowland catchments and estuaries are particularly vulnerable because of high land value and susceptibility to flooding from a combination of rivers, groundwater and the sea. Read more
