  Understanding tree rings – how the interplay of climate and seed production controls tree growth
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Tree rings have a broad range of applications in environmental science including quantifying forest growth, carbon storage, and the reconstruction of Holocene climate.
  Tree mortality and drought: leveraging the power of big data
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  SCENARIO: Roles of woodland birds in the transmission of emerging tree diseases
  Dr G Barrett, Dr R Broughton, Dr K Schönrogge, Prof R W Jackson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ecologically important tree species in the UK are facing increased threats from invasive pests and pathogens, spurred on by climate change and globalization.
  Tree-sewage symbiosis for healthy forests and people
  Prof P Davies, Dr D Hunt
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The deterioration of surface and groundwater quality in peri-urban areas of many emerging economies such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Vietnam is a serious cause for concern.
  Extending global forest carbon models based on LIDAR from tropics to other bioregions
  Dr R Valbuena
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
LiDAR is a technology based on a laser mounted on a plane or satellite, which can yield detailed scans of forest ecosystems. This valuable information allows detailed analyses of the ecology and dynamics of tree populations, and it is commonly used for estimating forest carbon stocks.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round
"Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis.
  Resilient treescapes for a changing climate: a mathematical approach
  Dr NG Parker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. Native trees are under constant threat from alien pests and diseases, as exemplified by recent outbreaks affecting ash and sweet chestnut trees.
  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
  Tracing the water trees use, and when they use it, as they get more CO2: implications for coping with water stress
  Dr J Larsen, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
It remains fundamentally unclear how increasing CO2 concentrations will affect plant water use. On the one hand, water use may decrease because stomata can open less frequently.
  Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban tree-water processes
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street trees influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
