  Carbon sequestration potential of apple rootstocks: the role of root recalcitrance, rhizodeposition, and the rhizosphere microbiome (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_5)
  Dr F O'Brien, Prof M Tibbett, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Leaf chemistry response to elevated CO2: decomposition and nutrient cycle impacts
  Dr R Bartlett, Dr L Batty
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air Carbon Enrichment Facility (BIFoR FACE) is an outdoor experiment studying the impact of elevated carbon dioxide (eCO2) on an established deciduous forest ecosystem through several multi-disciplinary research projects.
  Identifying tipping points regulating greenhouse gas emission from soils at two forest free air co2 enrichment experiments
  Dr S Ullah, Dr S Yamulki, Prof E Pendall
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Globally, natural ecosystems including forests are responsible for ~60% of the total nitrous oxide (N2O) gas emitted from soils, and consume ~25% of the total atmospheric methane (CH4).
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Identifying strategies for carbon-efficient commercial farming in the UK - Priestley Doctoral Scholarships
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof L.G. Firbank, Dr M Galdos
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The University of Leeds is building a stakeholder coalition to create a series of farmlets, areas of land at the University farm of 1-2Ha, each of which will be managed according to a different farming system, but with common methodologies of sensing and reporting.
  Siberian summers: detecting the leakage of old carbon from permafrost catchments
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Arctic permafrost soils are large carbon stores capable of driving a positive climate feedback loop as global temperatures rise (Dean et al., 2018a).
  Deep matter – soils and their power to fight climate change
  Dr S Reinsch, Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Do you care about nature? Do you care about your health and the health of others? - Then you care about SOIL. Soils are crucial components of our world; being the basis for food production, water and nutrients.
  Deep matter - soils and their power to fight climate extremes
  Dr S Reinsch
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Do you care about nature? Do you care about your health and the health of others? - Then you care about SOIL. Soils are crucial components of our world; being the basis for food production, water and nutrients.
  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
