  Assessing the pollination efficiency of different species of bees on buzz-pollinated plants of agricultural significance
  Dr M Vallejo-Marin, Prof P Willmer
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Bees provide essential pollination services in both natural and agricultural systems. The recent and worrying decline in bee populations around the world has highlighted the importance of understanding the interaction of flowers and bees during pollination.
  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.
  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].
  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.
  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.
  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.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Woodland Trust]
  Dr R Davies, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Woodland Trust. Scientific background. Intensive agriculture is one of the main drivers of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  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.
  Understanding invasive plant-native animal interactions in São Paulo State, Brazil.
  Dr W Dawson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
In Brazil, white ginger (Hedychium coronarium) is a widespread invasive plant in riparian and wetland areas, including in the Atlantic Forest biodiversity hotspot, where it has the potential to transform ecological communities and hydrology in this important water catchment.
  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.
