QUADRAT DTP CASE: Applications of Near Surface Geophysics to Forestry and Arboriculture

Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs) of trees caused by pathogens, pests and fungipose a major threat for forests and woodlands. Recent outbreaks almost brought some species to extinction with devastating effects to the European flora. Read more

Mycorrhizal mediation of woodland expansion on former farmland

We seek a candidate for a PhD project aimed at providing practical solutions to address the global issue of climate change by maximising the success of tree planting as a mitigation strategy. Read more

The ecological function of trees outside woodland on the colonisation of woodland creation sites

New woodland creation is at the forefront of UK’s environmental policy agenda (Defra 2021). Although there has been an overall increase in UK woodland extent in recent decades (Forestry Research, 2022) many woodland species continue to decline. Read more

Ancient woodlands and development-related threats: How can we develop effective, targeted mitigation to protect these valuable ‘Keepers of Time’?

Ancient woodlands provide some of Great Britain’s most biodiverse and culturally significant habitats. Current planning policy aims to protect these ‘irreplaceable’ habitats from the direct and indirect impacts of nearby development. Read more

Decay resistance of naturally durable eucalyptus timber

Some timbers are remarkably resistant against decay and therefore highly priced. These naturally durable timbers are rare and often sourced unsustainably from tropical forests. Read more

Grass half full? Adapting the hydrological management of grazed lowland peatlands to balance climate change mitigation with agriculture.

Project background. Over 10% of the UK’s land surface is covered by peat, representing the country’s largest carbon store. Much of this land has now been modified by drainage to support grazing, crop cultivation and forestry, as a result of which peatlands are believed to emit over 18 Mt CO. Read more
