Fully funded PhD in tree root systems

A fully-funded PhD position in tree root systems is available based in the School of Biological Sciences at. Te Herenga Waka ­- Victoria University of Wellington. Read more

More crop per drop: optimising root system architecture for sustainable food production

The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change are creating a ‘perfect storm’ in which the demand for food and other agricultural commodities is growing dramatically and unsustainably. Read more

Micro-Bio-Mechanical Modelling of root growth in soils

The extent and the way roots grow in the ground is known to have a fundamental impact on the growth of crop plants as well as on the resistance to lodging induced by storms. Read more

Testing the risks of chemicals to the Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Symbiosis (Ref: CTP-SAI-041)

Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) is a symbiosis formed between soil fungi and plant roots. Most land plants including our most widely grown crops benefit from this symbiosis. Read more

EASTBIO How do soil and root microbiomes influence the growth and development of spelt (Triticum spelta), an ancient wheat?

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Breeding of elite wheat varieties has led to a significant increase in yields at the farm and global scale, yet those yield gains are beginning to plateau, and in some regions decline. Read more

Damage characterisation and root cause analysis of wind turbine pitch bearings

Blade pitch bearings of large scale wind turbines control the individual blades in order to maximise power generation at low wind speeds and to prevent turbine damages under high winds. Read more

Triple whammy – breeding wheat for increased winter growth rate

Crop root growth has generated significant interest with regard to net zero agriculture, because increasing root mass captures more carbon in the soil, and leads to more effective uptake of nitrogenous fertilizer. Read more

Circadian rhythms in plant-microbe-soil interactions

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. ·      Circadian clocks represent adaptations to the rhythmic nature of our environment because they allow organisms to adjust their physiology ahead of predictable daily changes in light and temperature conditions linked to the rotation of the earth. Read more

Understanding below ground controls on drought-induced mortality of tropical trees

Project summary. Tropical forests play a wide range of beneficial roles for humans including regional climate moderation, carbon capture, clean water provision and, possibly most importantly, preserving an immense richness of biodiversity. Read more

(BBSRC) Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more
