  Unexplored transitions between forest and savanna in Africa
  Dr K Dexter, Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
See. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/124. Project Background. The forests and savanna biomes of Africa are known the world over for their biodiversity and carbon storage.
  The ecology of lightning strikes: How many trees in tropical forests are killed by lightning?
  Dr T Hill, Dr L Rowland, Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Acoustic monitoring of human exploitation in tropical forests
  Dr J.L. Snaddon, Prof C P Doncaster
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Tropical forests contain over half of global terrestrial biodiversity, and they provide vital ecosystem services at local, regional and global scales.
  Diagnosing and forecasting human impacts on tropical forests
  Prof M Williams, Dr S Hancock, Dr M Naylor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
This project will probe the biophysical and social factors that are linked to changes in forest states across the tropics. Knowledge of these factors will help to guide sustainable management of forests and identify where and when forest change are likely to occur.
  Examining the ecological consequences of climate-driven shifts in the structure of NE Atlantic kelp forests
  Dr D Smale, Dr A Jensen
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Kelps are foundation species in temperate coastal waters and have elevated importance in the maintenance of ecosystem structure and functioning1.
  Remote Sensing for sustainable use of seasonally dry tropical forests
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof T Meagher
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Around the world, seasonally dry tropical forests have in the past been disregarded as marginal wastelands but are now recognised for the importance of their biodiversity and potential ecosystem services.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr G Powney, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Deforestation, forest degradation and fire in the tropics
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
The aim of this PhD project is to understand the links between tropical deforestation, forest degradation and fire and to quantify the impacts on regional air quality and climate.
  Constraining the carbon balance of intact tropical forest landscapes
  Dr T Baker, Dr D Galbraith, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Intact tropical forests play a key role in determining the rate of climate change, as they can act as either a significant sink, or potentially source, of carbon.
