  Solar parks: refuges for pollinators and boosting pollination services
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why this project is important. solar parks are growing exponentially across the world and this growth is expected to continue. At the same time there is growing global concern that reduced pollinator populations are limiting the production of critical things, including food, on which society relies.
  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.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how isdiapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  The genetic basis of recent loss of self-incompatibility in North American Arabidopsis lyrata
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr A Tedder, Dr K Poterlowicz
Applications accepted all year round
The shift to self-pollination (or selfing) is one of the most prevalent evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Charles Darwin (1876) studied selfing using extensive ecological experiments.
  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’.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Understanding and mitigating the impacts of climate change on farmland plant-pollinator and host-parasitoid networks: an environmental informatics approach
  Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Merging DNA metabarcoding with ecological network analysis provides a revolutionary opportunity to construct large, phylogenetically structured species-interaction networks, providing new ways to.
  Landscape diversity underpins sustainable agriculture in sub-saharan africa
  Dr J Storkey
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The previous secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, called for a uniquely African green revolution in response to the need to increase productivity while reducing the negative impacts of industrialised agriculture on the environment and societies.
  Landscape diversity underpins sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Storkey
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The previous secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, called for a uniquely African green revolution in response to the need to increase productivity while reducing the negative impacts of industrialised agriculture on the environment and societies.
