  Filling the emissions gap: Investigating the dynamic contribution of soil volatile organic compounds to temperate and tropical forest atmospheres
  Dr K Ashworth, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) disrupt the chemical equilibrium of the atmosphere causing increased formation of air pollutants and greenhouse gases.
  Forest degradation and ecosystem services in tropical montane forests. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Ted Feldpausch, University of Exeter, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Prof Toby Pennington, Department of Geography, University of Exeter.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  The ecology of lightning strikes: How many trees in tropical forests killed by lightning? PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr T Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Timothy Hill, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  Impact of tropical selective logging on avian feeding interactions
  Dr D Edwards, Prof T A Burke, Dr J Hodgson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 400 million hectares of tropical forest -- an area the size of the European Union -- are designated for selective logging. More sustainable practices to manage timber extraction are possible if we understand the biodiversity impacts of logging.
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve sustainability of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr J.L. Snaddon, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity tropical areas, alongside a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge in many countries with tropical climates.
  Examining climate change impacts on tropical butterflies
  Prof J K Hill, Dr I Kitching, Dr C Beale, Dr NJB Isaac
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is resulting in many species shifting their ranges, altering. community composition at sites as some species colonise and other go.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh, Mr M Soh, Dr C L Puan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
