PhD STUDENTSHIP IN TEMPORARY RIVER ECOLOGY
Ecological responses to hydrological dynamism in temporary river ecosystems
Project Description
Temporary rivers experience natural transitions between lotic, lentic, and terrestrial conditions, which contributes substantially to their high biodiversity. Their dynamic nature poses a unique and pressing challenge for the effective assessment and enhancement of temporary river health. This project is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with leading researchers from academia and industry to address this challenge and to contribute to the rapidly expanding discipline of temporary river ecology. The PhD research will contribute to EU and global efforts to improve characterization of temporary rivers and their biodiversity, and will inform future initiatives to enhance ecosystem quality. 

The PhD project combines two complementary aspects:
1.       An extensive field work programme will be developed to characterize dry-phase communities across temporary chalk rivers of contrasting ecological quality, and to evaluate the ability of these biota (and potentially environmental DNA) to act as novel indicators of ecological status.

2.       The project will evaluate the effectiveness of flow and physical habitat restoration as means of improving the ecological health of temporary rivers, by interrogating a 20-year Environment Agency data set that details the aquatic invertebrate communities, hydrological variability and physical channel characteristics of chalk rivers.
