  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.
  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.
  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.
  Modelling temporal changes in biodiversity as a function of land-use change in Indonesia
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Pugh, Dr NE Barrand
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The reported impacts of forest loss and land-use change are almost universally negative, and habitat loss more generally is argued to be the biggest driver of the current extinction crisis (Sala et al., 2000; Haddad et al., 2015).
  How does urbanisation shape biodiversity? Integrating spatial and temporal dimensions
  Research Group: Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine
  Dr D Dominoni, Dr R Mancy, Dr S Spatharis, Prof J Matthiopoulos
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Urbanisation is one of the most pervasive forms of habitat change. More than half of the world’s human population now resides in urban areas, and urban land cover is projected to triple between 2000 and 2030.
  Creating “Climate-smart” soils to optimize carbon sequestration through land management
  Dr J Subke, Dr M Garnett, Dr M Perks, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Background. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2018) recently outlined the clear case for reducing net CO2 emissions globally.
  SCENARIO: The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer, Dr R Walters
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
