  Using machine learning to develop a global vegetation phenology model
  Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
The prediction, in space and time, of vegetation phenological variables such as.
  Being behind the times? Assessing the liana-induced impact on forest phenology using an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)
  Dr G van der Heijden, Dr D Boyd
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Lianas reduce growth and increase mortality of their host trees, thereby reducing carbon accumulation in tropical forests by as much as 76%.
  Woodland insect responses to climate change
  Dr S Hayward, Dr J P Sadler, Dr C Pfrang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Forest/woodland systems are major source of biodiversity globally and also play a crucial role in carbon capture/mitigating against rising CO2 levels.
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  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.
  Grassland parasites and community dynamics under climate warming
  Prof E Morgan, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Eric Morgan of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences, Dr Lesley Lancaster of University of Aberdeen School of Biological Sciences, and Dr Thomas Fleming of the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute.
  Floral utopia for urban pollinators - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof J Memmott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Pollinators are declining worldwide, and a lack of floral resources is high on the list of likely causes. While there are many pollinator-friendly planting mixes for use in urban and rural areas, most are based on expert knowledge rather than a rigorous evidence base.
  Global change effects on boreal forests: how will boreal ecosystems respond to climate warming?
  Prof M Williams, Dr L Street, Dr I Myers-Smith
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
This project will test whether boreal latitudes are undergoing tipping point transitions that restructure ecosystems due to warming and feedbacks between nutrient cycling and vegetation.
  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship - Modelling butterfly abundance at varying spatial scales to inform conservation delivery
  Dr R McCrea
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
A key feature of statistical models applied to butterflies involves accounting for seasonal variation in counts, as butterflies emerge throughout the year via one or more broods.
  Floral pollen resources and their importance for pollinators and pollination services.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof W E Kunin, Prof J Memmott, Prof G Wright
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Recent pollinator losses have been linked in part to declines in floral resources. While we have demonstrated that British nectar availability declined over the past century (Baude et al.
