Improved soil moisture detection to understand climate threats to Amazon rainforests

See also. https://eo-cdt.org/projects/improved-soil-moisture-detection-to-understand-climate-threats-to-amazon-rainforests/. Tropical rainforests exchange more carbon dioxide with the atmosphere than any other land biome. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of mining on tropical biodiversity

Mining is the most luctrative industry globally, with rapid expansion of mines predicted accross the tropics. This expansion will drive deforestation within the mine itself and through interaction with socio-economic development outside of the mine. Read more

Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and interdisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research in all aspects of human geography and environmental science, including lab-based, field-based, desk-based and policy-oriented research. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more
