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

Informing landscape-scale conservation of rare bats using novel telemetry techniques

  Research Group: EBE
Landscape-scale planning for bat conservation is challenging because detailed information on habitat use is difficult to obtain, particularly for rare bats that are infrequently recorded using acoustic techniques. Read more

Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability. Read more

Refining the tagging of wild fish and sharks [Biosciences] – PhD (Funded)

Location.  . Biosciences, Streatham Campus, Exeter.  . The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences is inviting applications for a PhD studentship funded by NC3Rs to commence in September 2021. 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

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

’Wait a minute! How did it...?’ Unravelling the causes and consequences of the evolution of larval development in invertebrates (Distance Learning Project)

Invertebrates that possess modular development – composed of a larval and an adult stage that are different morpho-ecologically – appear to have been the most successful amongst all invertebrates in conquering marine and terrestrial habitats. 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

Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion. Read more
