  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.
  Ecological mechanisms that underlie ecosystem resilience to land use changes: demographic compensation in plant-pollinator networks
  Dr C García, Dr J Hodgson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background Recent studies document that anthropic activity causes pollinator decline that, in turn, impacts fecundity patterns of plants they feed upon imperiling their persistence.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
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.
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Social epidemiology: interactions, networks, and disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – in complex social organisms, like humans and bees, is poorly understood.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
