  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.
  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.
  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].
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
