  Mathematical Methods for Evaluation of Pest Insect Abundance
  Dr N Petrovskaya
Applications accepted all year round
Ecosystems are under pressure due to anthropogenic impact which has increased considerably over the last few decades. This pressure can significantly affect the structure of ecological communities, often enhancing population outbreaks of harmful species.
  Plant-insect interactions: Selecting pest-tolerant eucalypt breeds for New Zealand Forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
The New Zealand Dryland Forests Initiative (NZDFI) https://nzdfi.org.nz/ is breeding elite eucalypt species to produce high-value, naturally ground-durable (not requiring chemical treatment) timber in dryland regions of New Zealand.
  The toxic challenge: how do we control mosquito populations responsibly in small tropical island ecosystems?
  Dr R Gill, Dr L Cator, Dr A Burt
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
The use of chemical insecticides to control insect pest species is the most adopted strategy across the globe.
  Complementary strategies for the sustainable management of an invasive pest in Africa
  Dr G Aradottir, Dr K Wilson
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
In January 2016, the first reports of a new invasive pest was received in Africa. In less than two years, the new pest – the Fall armworm, Spodoptera frugiperda – had spread to most countries (>30) within-subSaharan Africa (https://youtu.be/4iN7-DmOjwc).
  Predicting African insect crop pests in real-time
  Dr S White, Dr C Cobbold, Dr P Gonzalez-Moreno, Dr S Murphy
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Crop pests are of serious and growing concern throughout Africa, causing significant economic and dietary impacts on humans and livestock.
  How does climate influence insect responses to pesticides? – A key question for food security
  Dr S Hayward, Dr N J Hodges, Dr L Orsini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. As poikilotherms the body temperature of insects is directly determined by environmental conditions. Thus, microclimate temperature profiles, which are often highly variable, will dictate rates of metabolic activity and development as well as behaviour.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  Biodiversity and ecosystem services: Birds, bats, bees, and cocoa trees
  Dr A Welch, Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Human populations are increasing rapidly and consumption is intensifying. Land is being cleared at a dramatic pace and biodiversity, which provides critical ecosystem services, is being lost at an unprecedented rate.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
