Quantifying the response and sensitivity of tropical forest carbon sinks to various drivers

Project Rationale. Terrestrial ecosystems play an important role in the climate system and the global carbon cycle. For example, terrestrial vegetation acts as a carbon sink by absorbing up to 15-30% of all anthropogenic CO. Read more

Volcanic fertilisation of tropical forest biomes

Tropical rainforest biomes are some of the most diverse and productive ecosystems on the planet, but these systems are also particularly vulnerable to changing climatic and environmental conditions. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - Untangling the effects of lianas on tropical forest diversity

Over the past 10 years, it has been recognised that parasitic plants, lianas, play an important role in the structure of tropical systems through limiting the growth of trees and increasing their mortality, as well as slowing the colonisation of gaps. Read more

Linking secondary succession of carbon stocks and biodiversity to land use history in tropical forests (PERES_ENV23CDCC)

Secondary and degraded tropical forests (STFs) now cover a larger area than undisturbed old-growth forests.  The long-term conservation of both terrestrial carbon stocks and biodiversity depends on the capacity of regenerating tropical forests to retain forest biomass and plant/animal species to maintain key ecosystem functions, including carbon sequestration.

Facilitating forest restoration to improve sustainability of tropical swidden agriculture

Project Rationale. One of the global challenges is to achieve food security in the face of an expanding world population. This challenge is particularly relevant to PNG, where 85% of the population depend on swidden agriculture, within the third largest area of tropical forest worldwide. 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

Implications of agriculture derived pollution in soil biodiversity

Project Outline. This project is at the intersection of ecotoxicology, biodiversity and agriculture. The project’s novelty is the application of state-of-the-art ecotoxicology methods and genomics to understand the impact and implications of agriculture-derived pollution in soil biodiversity.
