Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Mark Ledger’s research in freshwater systems encompasses community ecology, biodiversity and environmental change. His research group works at a range of spatial and temporal scales, utilising laboratory microcosms, field mesocosms and natural environmental gradients in real ecosystems. Their current research has four overlapping foci: disturbance ecology; food webs, species interactions, particularly plant-herbivore dynamics, and stressor effects on biodiversity and ecosystem function. Ongoing research includes: Disturbance, biological legacies and community development Disturbance and dynamic stability Environmental change and freshwater food webs Model food webs: replicability and realism Interaction strengths within the algae-herbivore sub-web Environmental change, aquatic biodiversity and species interactions He welcomes enquiries from prospective students in these areas.
