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

Quantifying drivers of human-elephant conflict in an arid savanna ecosystem

The continental-range of the African elephant has been dramatically reduced and fragmented due to the rapid expansion of human settlements and agriculture, resulting in escalating conflict over access to food and water resources. 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

The impact of climate change on the thermal ecology of cold-adapted butterflies

The project will investigate how increasing temperatures are affecting northern butterflies in the UK, and test the potential for managing habitats to promote climate change adaptation. Read more

Measuring and modelling natural selection in hybrid zones

Situations where there is hybridisation between two different species provide fascinating test cases of the adaptive value of traits that differ among taxa (Barton and Hewitt, 1989). Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Genetic consequences of climate change-induced range shifts in Aricia butterflies

Lead Supervisor: Prof Chris Thomas (University of York Department of Biology). Co-supervisor:  Dr Kanchon Dasmahapatra (University of York Department of Biology), Dr David Roy (CEH) Dr Rachel Pateman (University of York Department of Environment and Geography). Read more

Where Have All The Hares Gone? Understanding Species Decline and to Support Species Recovery in Complex Multistakeholder Systems

About the Project. Lead-supervisor; Dr Helen Wheeler (School of Biological Sciences, Anglia Ruskin University). Co-supervisors; Dr Scott Newey and Dr Alessandro Gimona (The James Hutton Institute), and Rosalind Bryce (The University of Highlands & Islands). 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

Cold blood in warming winters: physiological impacts of climate change on UK reptiles

Environmental change is causing temperatures to rise across the globe - how this will affect the distribution and abundance of species is therefore an important current focus for ecologists worldwide. Read more
