Rice farming and rodent-borne zoonoses

Land-use changes due to intensified agricultural practices are a concern in the Philippines (Dirzo et al, 2014). The replacement of forests by mixed agroecosystems and high-value crops has led to biodiversity loss and increased contact of humans with wild animal populations. Read more

Co-innovation for Caribbean Agroecology Transitions (CiCAT)

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. The Caribbean region is an epicentre for extreme climate events, featuring frequent droughts and periodical hurricane occurrence. Read more

Project at Cranfield University: Carbon sequestration in agricultural soils through silicate weathering

One of the most promising ‘geo-engineering’ methods to mitigate climate change is to capture CO. 2. from the air and react it with silicate rocks to form carbonate rocks, so permanently sequestering the CO. Read more

Co-benefits and Trade-offs for Regenerative Agriculture

Project description. Nearly 70% of UK land area and 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional or intensive land-use systems. Read more

Capturing the agronomic, economic and carbon benefits of new clover varieties into a Carbon Profit Index

Project aims. To create a Carbon-Profit Index (CPI) comprising a new agronomic assessment protocol that reduces the carbon footprint (CF) of managed grass/clover swards while protecting the economic value (EV) and sustainability of grassland farming. Read more

FixOurFood: Pathways to a Regenerative Food System

The new School for Business and Society at the University of York are delighted to offer a fully-funded 3-year PhD studentship aligned to the FixOurFood interdisciplinary research programme. Read more

Modelling biochar-colloids fate and transport in the subsurface

Groundwater and soil pollution is a cause of concern for drinking-water sources, as toxic chemicals continue to contaminate subsurface reservoirs via wastewater, agricultural runoff, storm water, air pollution, and polluted soils. Read more

Back to the land: labour, agriculture and ecological transition

Project Description. The global food system is in crisis, driven by ecological and climate catastrophes, plantation monocultures, labour exploitation (particularly of migrants), rising input prices due to war, and in the UK Brexit and soaring land values, alongside food poverty. Read more

Improving the transferability of ecological research

Ecologists aspire both to understand nature and to provide society with interventions to restore, conserve and manage nature in the face of climate and ecological breakdown. Read more

Quantifying carbon content in European agricultural land

Farming practices and interventions that sequester and store carbon in agricultural soils can significantly contribute to climate change mitigation, as well as support farmer’s adaptation to increasing frequency of extreme events, droughts and floods. Read more
