  Ecosystem services associated with aquatic plants in urban landscapes
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Current projections of urbanisation predict that between 2000 and 2030 the extent of urban areas will increase by an estimated 185%, representing a considerable threat to biodiversity and complex challenges for urban planners and conservationists alike (Hassall, 2014).
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Understanding the ecology and evolution of defence-pollination conflicts in plants
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how species adapt to different environments requires consideration of how they respond to multiple agents of natural selection.
  Testing impacts of ant-plant protection mutualisms on plant community dynamics in Papua New Guinea
  Dr T Fayle, Prof V Novotny, Dr P Klimes
Application Deadline: 28 December 2018
A highly motivated postgraduate student is sought to join a project exploring the effects of ant inhabitation of trees on plant community dynamics.
  An experimental and macroecological investigation of precipitation effects on Arctic plant root traits
  Dr F Schrodt
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The Arctic tundra is particularly exposed to climate change, with warming of up to 5°C measured during the 20th century, and substantial increases in precipitation predicted for the 21st century.
  Improving Agroforestry in Latin America with the Versatile Tree Genus Inga
  Dr K Dexter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
See. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/98. Summary. The student will contribute to a funded project using experimental and observational approaches to determine the best Inga species for agroforestry, while developing their own projects on specific species of Inga.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The effect of extreme climatic change on insect-plant interactions during the Jurassic
  Dr B Caswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The increases in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (pCO2), that are associated with climate change, cause decreases in the nutritional value of plants to the herbivorous insects that feed upon them.
  Phytophagous Mite Control in Raspberry: Integrating Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches
  Dr A Karley, Dr S MacFarlane, Prof T Bruce
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Phytophagous mites are major agricultural pests in annual, perennial and horticultural crops. In UK raspberry plantations, two mite species are particularly problematic, causing foliar damage, fruit malformation and yield loss.
  Structure and function of soil microbial communities in contrasting biomes at The Eden Project
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"The Eden Project is a unique global garden situated in a reclaimed Kaolinite quarry approximately 3 miles from St Austell, Cornwall.
  Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
