PhD position at University of Strathclyde: Mathematical and statistical modelling of the spread and establishment of non-native species into UK marine waters
Non-native species are a significant threat to native wildlife and populations of various species have established themselves in UK marine waters. Increasing temperatures due to global warming have increased the number of potential species that can invade. The American comb … Continue reading
Phd position at University of Strathclyde: Modelling the impact of marine reserves and wind-farm developments on the population dynamics of commercially harvested shellfish stocks.
ackground: Most commercially exploited marine invertebrate species in Scottish waters (scallops, crabs and Norway lobster; catches worth £130 million p.a.) have sedentary adult stages confined to specific seabed habitats, but annually release larvae that drift passively in the water column for … Continue reading
Phd Position at University of Strathclyde: Modelling the availability of small pelagic fish to birds and marine mammal predators off the east coast of Scotland.
This project will develop mathematical models of the contrasting life cycles of sandeel and sprat, and use them to investigate the consequences fishing and climate change for their population dynamics off the east of Scotland. The key question to be … Continue reading
