PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. 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

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

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

Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales. Read more
