Elephant nutrition- a new PhD project

Elephants at Knowsley SafariĀ Park

In a few weeks time we will be joined by new PhD student Fiona Sach, who is funded through a NERCĀ Envision Doctoral Training Programme, the Hermes Trust and Royal Society International Exchange scheme. Her project is supervised through Lisa Yon in the Vet School at Nottingham, Martin Broadley and myself in the School of Biosciences and is linked to the British Geological Survey with Michael Watts and Melanie Leng. Fiona will be focusing on mineral nutrition in captive and wild elephants.

Fiona has posted her own blog about the project here.
