EASTBIO Integrating trees into agricultural landscapes to enhance biodiversity and associated ecosystem services

Tree planting is at the forefront of the current environmental agenda to mitigate climate change and the biodiversity crisis. For instance, the Scottish Government has a current target of planting 12,000 ha of trees per year, increasing to 15,000 ha from 2024. Read more

Polymorphism-aware Species Trees

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
The recent sequencing of genomes of closely related species and of many individuals from the same species enables the study of speciation and the inference of the history of populations. Read more

Self-funded MRes – A spectral assessment of ash dieback in a managed woodland

The study site is Bradfield Woods in Suffolk, eastern England. Bradfield Woods is a rare example of managed mixed species coppice, dominated by common ash (Fraxinus excelsior), hazel (Corylus avellana), birch (Betula spp.) and alder (Alnus glutinosa) which is typically cut on a rotation of 20 to 25 years.

Assessment of pathogen impacts on novel forestry species and provenances in the UK to aid understanding of future commercial potential

Forests in the UK are in a vulnerable position as epidemics of invasive pathogens such as Phytophthora ramorum on larches and Dothistroma septosporum on pines have narrowed the range of commercially viable timber species. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Anticipating emerging pest species on a global scale

Prediction of emerging crop pests remains a high priority objective in the 21st century, as the redistribution of both insects and crop species continue around the world, under both human-assisted dispersal and warming processes. Read more

Expanding phylogenetic reconstruction in bacteria

Bacterial phylogenies are generally built using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as their behaviour is well-studied, and they usually produce robust phylogenetic trees. Read more

Self-funded MRes – Assessing the effects of coppice rotation and ash dieback on bird species distribution in a managed woodland

The study site is Bradfield Woods in Suffolk, eastern England. Bradfield Woods is a rare example of managed mixed species coppice, dominated by common ash (Fraxinus excelsior), hazel (Corylus avellana), birch (Betula spp.) and alder (Alnus glutinosa) which is typically cut on a rotation of 20 to 25 years.
