  How does alternative land use policy in deltas affect food production and development: A case of the Mahanadi?
  Prof J Dash, Prof EL Tompkins
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Developing country river deltas are climate change hotspots and these are in urgent need of transdisciplinary research to address the drivers of social and physical vulnerability (Cochrane et al., 2017).
  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Land use change monitoring from satellites using artificial intelligence
  Prof H Balzter, Dr A Zhang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Recent advances in computing technology, cloud computing and high-performance computing are paralleled with those in advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and significant investment in the European Copernicus Earth Observation programme and its Sentinel satellite missions.
  Ecological mechanisms that underlie ecosystem resilience to land use changes: demographic compensation in plant-pollinator networks
  Dr C García, Dr J Hodgson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background Recent studies document that anthropic activity causes pollinator decline that, in turn, impacts fecundity patterns of plants they feed upon imperiling their persistence.
  Impact of blue/green infrastructure interventions and future land use scenarios on dynamic evolution of natural capital
  Dr S Arthur, Dr V Glenis, Prof T Fernandes, Dr S Ncube
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The natural capital and ecosystem services concepts are popular ways of describing the multiple benefits from the natural environment.
  Tropical land-use change and regional climate
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
Rapid deforestation and degradation are occurring across the tropics. This land-use change impacts the surface energy balance, water and carbon cycles through changes to land-surface properties and through smoke emitted by forest and vegetation fires (Spracklen et al., 2018).
  Livelihood transition, youth and migration: breaking or reproducing environmental stress in agro-ecological systems
  Dr F Sugden
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Summary. Upland areas have long been important regions of out-migration, given the fragile ecological resource base, population pressure and peripheral status within larger national economies.
  Micronutrient and pollution transfer in East African lake catchments: impacts on the food-water-energy security nexus
  Dr M Watts
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Subsistence farmers in Africa are often dependent on food grown within a limited area. Therefore, their health is often associated with geochemical factors that influence the soil-to-crop transfer of essential micronutrients (MN) for health (e.g.
  Modelling the agriculture-deforestation interface in the Brazilian Amazon
  Prof D Moran, Dr R de Olivera Silva
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. Mathematical and socio-ecological modelling will be used to understand the dynamics of land use change and agricultural intensification and deforestation related to beef cattle and soybean production in Brazil.
  Valuing Ecosystem Services produced by the Colombian Páramos
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof D Moran
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. This project will use interdisciplinary methods to explore a production function approach to valuing hydrological services in Páramo case study sites.
