EASTBIO - Keeping the Leaves on: Investigating Disease Threats to Trees

Trees provide many ecosystem benefits, including for soil health, shelter, and food. Tree planting is often proposed as a method to sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide and thus mitigate climate change. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) The influence of fungal networks on the success of tree-planting schemes

Ambitious tree-planting schemes are a key part of the UK Government’s Net Zero Strategy, but we understand little about the plant-soil interactions that will govern the success or failure of a tree planted in any given location. Read more

MRes Interdisciplinary Studies - Whispering Trees: A Warning in the Wind

The movement of trees by wind creates a unique acoustic environment. We propose that by measuring and characterising this psithurism (the sound of wind in trees), sound can be a medium to understand tree stability in different weather and seasons, ultimately to manage treefall risk. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - The form, function and vulnerability of urban trees under future climate change

Trees are an integral part of the urban landscape, and deliver a number of important health benefits and ecosystem services, such as carbon sequestration and storage, cooling through evapotranspiration and natural flood management. Read more

Role of Fungal endophyte communities in Carbon and Nutrients Cycling in Forest Soils under elevated atmospheric C02 concentrations - Flagship

Overview. Background and Research Questions. As global atmospheric concentration of CO. 2. continues to rise, the question remains how will mature forests respond to either help or hinder carbon capture via photosynthesis and carbon sequestration subsequently. 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

NERC E4 The phenology of woodland foodweb assembly

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply. Read more

Oak genetic diversity and co-adaptation with members of the food web

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. Forest trees support food webs by providing both food and habitat to other organisms such as insects and birds, among others. Read more
