  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The role of biodiversity in mitigating parasite impacts in farmed landscapes
  Prof M Emmerson, Prof J Travis, Dr A Aubry
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiversity provides a range of benefits for the functioning of ecosystems, but it also helps to limit the spread of disease. This occurs because congeneric species in a community can compete with vectors of disease limiting the abundance of the vector and hence the overall prevalence of the disease.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Understanding and predicting the success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini, Dr G Bocedi, Dr P Prodohl, Prof J Travis
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, are a major driver of environmental change that may lead to the extinction of local biodiversity, alter ecosystem services and cause huge economic damage.
  QUADRAT DTP: Energetics and survival of an apex predator - the African lion - in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Prof J Speakman, Dr C Tambling
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within the animal kingdom, certain species are particularly vulnerable to environmental disturbance, with apex predators being a case-in-point.
  QUADRAT DTP: Global profiles of species declines and success in the era of climate change
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The alarming extinctions of species worldwide pose unprecedented challenges for wildlife and human wellbeing [1].
  QUADRAT DTP: The effects of maternal stress on offspring survival in the fallow deer
  Dr D Jennings, Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of climate change and human-induced habitat fragmentation has resulted in an unprecedented planet-wide biodiversity crisis.
  QUADRAT DTP: Tropical Marine Biodiversity: Solving the taxonomic bottlenecks to environmental impact assessments
  Dr J Sigwart, Prof J Travis
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transitions in land use require environmental impact assessments (EIA) to allow decision makers to judge relative costs and benefits of development; part of this process relies on identifying species and subsequently determining their risk status.
