PhD: The evolution of metabolic adaptation to environmental change. Location: University of Nottingham Email Henry Lewis Ecological transitions between environments usually entail dietary shifts. Research regarding adaptive evolutionary responses have, until recently, rarely discussed genetically encoded metabolic changes required to transgress nutritional gradients during environmental change. Compared to saltwater equivalents, freshwater environments possess low dietary […]

The impact of small impoundments and connectivity loss on fish distribution and abundance in river ecosystems

Rivers are among the world’s most threatened ecosystems. Freshwater fisheries are at risk from multiple stressors including climate change, pollutants and the presence of dams which inhibit fish movement and migration. Globally, only 37% of the world’s rivers remain free of dams, but in the UK only 1% of watercourses are unimpeded by barriers due […]
