  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how isdiapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Social epidemiology: interactions, networks, and disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – in complex social organisms, like humans and bees, is poorly understood.
  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Woodland Trust]
  Dr R Davies, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Woodland Trust. Scientific background. Intensive agriculture is one of the main drivers of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
