  Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
  Effects of chemicals on ecosystems: extrapolating from individuals to ecosystem function
  Prof L L Maltby, Dr D Childs, Dr N Galic
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on ecosystems and the benefits they provide to people (i.e. ecosystem services).
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Valuing Ecosystem Services produced by the Colombian Páramos
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof D Moran
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. This project will use interdisciplinary methods to explore a production function approach to valuing hydrological services in Páramo case study sites.
  Integration of Geodiversity into Ecosystem Services Frameworks
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr H Burdett, Dr K Whitbread, Dr H Bosner, Dr A Miller
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Geodiversity is defined as the assemblages of, and processes within, the geological, geomorphological and soil / sediment features of a landscape – factors which fundamentally underpin biologically-based ecosystem services such as biodiversity.
  Species and size specific effects of urban trees on above- and below-ground ecosystem service provision
  Dr J Edmondson, Prof J Leake, Dr V Stovin, Dr K Doick
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
More than half of the global population live in urban areas, and that figure is projected to rise to 66% by 2050.
  Do detritivores mediate soil health and ecosystem services in the bioenergy crop Miscanthus?
  Dr R Rowe, Dr J Whitaker, Dr S Toet, Dr M Prendergast-Miller
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The perennial grass Miscanthus is a leading bioenergy feedstock grown in the UK and Europe, with the land area devoted to this crop increasing with growing investment in renewable energy solutions.
  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round
Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  Natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services – tackling scaling issues
  Dr L Jones
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary PhD will study natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services at a range of scales, to tackle critical questions in ecosystem services research.
  Natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services – tackling scaling issues
  Dr L Jones, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
We are looking for an enthusiastic person to undertake a PhD studying natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services at a range of scales.
