  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Reducing the environmental impact of controlling invasive rodent pests
  Prof JL Hurst, Prof P Stockley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Rodents play important roles in many ecosystems, influencing habitat structure and plant diversity, and providing an important food source for many predators.
  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.
  Development of Polymeric Nanocarriers in Continuous Flow for the Controlled Release of Agrochemicals
  Dr F Vilela, Dr V Arrighi
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
In recent years, there has been major advances in the area of nanotechnology applied to agriculture and the environment. Nonetheless, many issues remain to be addressed for this technology to have a significant impact.
  Phage WO as a vehicle to transform Wolbachia, a symbiont of major crop pests
  Dr B Makepeace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Wolbachia, an obligate intracellular bacterium, is the commonest animal symbiont on Earth. Certain strains have spread throughout arthropod populations worldwide, in part due to the reproductive manipulations they induce in their hosts.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Biodiversity’s contribution to future ecosystem service provision under global climate change
  Dr S G Willis, Dr D Hole, Prof M Whittingham
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The world’s biodiversity is in crisis, and continuing habitat loss and degradation, combined with ongoing climate change will mean species are increasingly threatened in future.
