  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Identification of types of tropical forest disturbance using satellite data and artificial intelligence
  Prof H Balzter, Dr I Tyukin, Dr P Rodriguez-Veiga
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Recent advances in computing technology, cloud computing and high-performance computing are paralleled with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and significant investment in the European Copernicus Earth Observation programme and its Sentinel satellite missions.
  Effects of changing climate on a tropical peat in Brazil: greenhouse gas sink or source?
  Dr G Abbott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Campina do Encantado is a tropical low-altitude bog (at sea level) that produces methane in São Paulo State, Brazil (under Tropical Forest).
  Plant adaptations to wetland conditions as regulators of methane oxidation and emissions from tropical wetlands
  Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Natural wetlands are the greatest emitters of atmospheric methane. Plants are important controls of this as they can both stimulate high methane production and suppress emissions by releasing oxygen into the ground supporting bacterially mediated oxidation of methane drastically cutting emissions.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  The value of sustainable use protected areas for jaguar conservation in the Brazilian Amazon
  Dr J Tzanopoulos, Dr V Boron
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
The jaguar is the largest feline in the Americas and historically ranged from the southwestern United States to southern Argentina.
  Wild minds: how do apes learn about and use their physical environments?
  Dr J M Chappell, Dr S K Thorpe
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The tropical forest environments in which the great ape species (including humans) evolved are dynamic, complex and challenging. Trees in tropical forests tend to fruit episodically.
  Orangutan behavioural ecology in wild and captive settings
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr J M Chappell
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical forest environments are mechanically very complex; they consist of a 3-D array of branches and vines that are flexible, irregular and discontinuous.
  Tree mortality and drought: leveraging the power of big data
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  Climate change in the Peruvian Amazon: assessing and modelling the role of invertebrates in wood decay and carbon cycling under changing flood dynamics
  Dr K Barrett, Dr M Burns
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Accurately measuring carbon fluxes in tropical forests is important due to their role in understanding and mitigating climate change.
