  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.
  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.
  Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others?
  Dr R Brienen, Prof E Gloor, Dr D Galbraith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others? A study on the functional linkage of tree hydraulics and their sensitivity to climate.
  Quantifying adaptive genetic variation for the conservation and management of East African tropical trees
  Prof A Jump, Dr S Cavers, Dr D Odee, Dr C Kettle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to undertake research focussing on understanding adaptive genetic diversity to underpin management decision making for East African tropical tree species.
  The Red Queen versus the Court Jester: do biotic or extrinsic factors shape the reptilian tree of life?
  Dr G Lloyd, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Living reptiles – the group that includes turtles, lizards, snakes, crocodiles, and birds – represent a highly successful radiation of terrestrial vertebrates containing roughly four times as many species as their sister clade, the mammals.
  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).
  Species and size specific effects of urban trees on above- and below-ground ecosystem service provision
  Dr J Edmondson, Prof J Leake, Dr V Stovin, Dr K Doick
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
More than half of the global population live in urban areas, and that figure is projected to rise to 66% by 2050.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
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.
