  Understanding the ecology and evolution of defence-pollination conflicts in plants
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how species adapt to different environments requires consideration of how they respond to multiple agents of natural selection.
  ’Seeing inside flood embankments’ – novel geophysical imaging approaches for assessing the health of safety–critical flood defence infrastructure
  Prof J Chambers, Prof M Kendall, Dr P Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project description. There are many thousands of kilometres of earth embankments within the UK flood defence and canal networks, much of which is aging and displaying increasing levels of failure in response to extreme weather events.
