  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  Links between animal behaviour, health and welfare
  Dr SDE Held
Applications accepted all year round
An animal’s behaviour both causes and reflects changes in its health and welfare. The biological processes underlying these relationships are increasingly well understood in humans.
  Developing a conservation action plan for the critically endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr M Holderied
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Philippines is deemed the “hottest” biodiversity hotspot (Shi et al., 2005), due to high species richness across multiple ecosystems and rapid habitat conversion.
  Floral utopia for urban pollinators - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof J Memmott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Pollinators are declining worldwide, and a lack of floral resources is high on the list of likely causes. While there are many pollinator-friendly planting mixes for use in urban and rural areas, most are based on expert knowledge rather than a rigorous evidence base.
  How do disease vector populations respond to climate change? NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S English, Dr J Bridle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
One of the major concerns about climate change is how it will influence future distribution of important disease vectors. Such effects are likely to be significant – insects are highly sensitive to temperature for vital rates – yet difficult to predict or to generalise across species.
  Intraspecific variation in responses to noise and light pollution - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof A Radford, Dr C Ioannou
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Human population growth, rapid urbanisation and the expansion of transportation networks have dramatically altered terrestrial and aquatic environments.
  Sensory adaptations to convergent micro-habitats - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S Montgomery, Prof N W Roberts
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals tune in to the most relevant information in their environment? Microhabitat partitioning between mimicry rings in Neotropical butterflies provides a case study in adaptation to different sensory environments.
  The effects of multiple stressors on the global declines of vertebrate populations - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr C Clements
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In a rapidly changing world characterised by increasing anthropogenic pressures the maintenance of biodiversity is a key target. One major challenge to overcome is the multi-faceted nature of human alterations.
