  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.
  Genetics and molecular basis of insect resistance in forest trees
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Background. Insect pests pose a rapidly growing threat to the sustainability of forest systems as a result of climate change and globalisation of commerce.
  Invertebrate communities in hollowing trees
  Dr T H Jones, Prof L Boddy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. In standing trees, most decay occurs in the heartwood (heart-rot). The rotted hearts of trees release nutrients for tree growth and provide habitat for assemblages of saproxylic bacteria and fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates.
  The ecology of lightning strikes: How many trees in tropical forests are killed by lightning?
  Dr T Hill, Dr L Rowland, Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Exploiting genetic variation in silicon defences: a new mechanism tocounter an emerging threat to UK ash trees
  Prof S Hartley, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Understanding the genetic mechanisms by which plants defend. themselves against insect pests and fungal diseases is particularly.
  Why does C4 photosynthesis rarely evolve in trees?
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
C4 photosynthesis is an ultra-efficient mode plant physiology that is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops, including maize, sugarcane, and miscanthus.
  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
  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.
  Agroforestry, soil health and delivery of public goods
  Prof P Chapman, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Agroforestry is the practice of deliberately growing trees in combination with arable crops and/or pasture on the same piece of land.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
