  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.
  Extracting novel algorithms from Nature
  Dr G Bassel, Dr I Johnston
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
The development of algorithms underpins the information processing age and data science. Creating novel algorithms capable for processing information under different conditions and scenarios provides opportunities to extend computation to new domains and under different conditions.
  Floral utopia for urban pollinators - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof J Memmott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Pollinators are declining worldwide, and a lack of floral resources is high on the list of likely causes. While there are many pollinator-friendly planting mixes for use in urban and rural areas, most are based on expert knowledge rather than a rigorous evidence base.
  Ecosystem services associated with aquatic plants in urban landscapes
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Current projections of urbanisation predict that between 2000 and 2030 the extent of urban areas will increase by an estimated 185%, representing a considerable threat to biodiversity and complex challenges for urban planners and conservationists alike (Hassall, 2014).
  Investigating adaptation of autotetraploid Erythranthe guttata to internal and external environmental challenges
  Dr J Higgins, Prof E Louis
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The monkey flower plant (Erythranthe guttata, formerly Mimulus guttatus) is an out-crossing, water-loving species that is largely distributed throughout North America in both diploid and autotetraploid populations.
  Optimising reproductive organ photosynthesis to improve seed oil content
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  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.
  Seasonality control of barley flowering: from the lab to the field
  Prof S J Davis, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Flowering time is a critical developmental transition in barley, as the plant stops making leaves and allocates resources to reproduction.
