  Sustainable approaches to crop protection: silicon supplementation and its effects on symbiont-mediated multitrophic interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Prof S Hartley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Outbreaks of insect pests damage crops and are predicted to increase under climate change. Controlling them with synthetic pesticides is environmentally damaging and sustainable alternatives are urgently needed.
  The aphid microbiome: ecological and evolutionary dynamics of multispecies interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
All organisms face a multitude of environmental threats and have to. adapt to overcome these challenges. Many insects get help from an.
  Developing a High-Throughput Platform in Barley to Screen for Resistance to Aphids
  Dr J Russell, Prof R Waugh, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Aphids are economically important pests globally, and can cause significant yield loss of crops, including barley. Currently there are no commercial barley cultivars that are resistant against aphids, and only limited sources of partial resistance have been reported to date.
  War in the cabbage patch: a field test of metacommunity theory
  Prof J Bullock, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why do ecological communities vary in structure and dynamics across landscapes? Metacommunity theory suggests that this variation is caused by differences in species’ dispersal abilities, coupled with environmental and ecological filtering.
  Epigenetics, embryogenesis and plasticity in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr A.D. Peel
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
All animals respond to their environment but some are able generate morphologically and behaviourally distinct individuals from the same genome in response to an environmental cue, a phenomenon known as phenotypic plasticity.
