  Understanding nitrous oxide “hot-spot” dynamics in upland soils
  Dr M Whelan, Dr J Kaduk
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a powerful greenhouse gas. It is important, therefore, to understand the factors controlling its emission – particularly from agricultural systems.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Catchment-scale hydro-geomorphological analysis of upland river restoration (with CASE partner SEPA)
  Dr R Williams, Dr R Hodge, Prof T Hoey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
River restoration encompasses a wide variety of activities to improve physical, chemical and/or biological processes in rivers.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Dr M Morecroft, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Minimising adverse effects of conservation: Ecological consequences of restoration of salmon carcasses to upland streams (Ref IAP2-18-31)
  Prof N Metcalfe
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Salmon populations are declining and in need of active conservation measures, but how is their freshwater habitat best managed to maximise their survival? The juveniles live in uplands streams that would previously have contained many adult salmon that would have died after spawning, so releasing nutrients into an otherwise nutrient-poor environment.
  Carbon dynamics of pre-and post-fire moorlands in upland Britain
  Prof P Hughes, Dr B.J. Robroek, Dr J Leyland
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Peatlands are critical terrestrial carbon (C) stores and may store up to 17% of the global soil carbon stock [1].
  Livelihood transition, youth and migration: breaking or reproducing environmental stress in agro-ecological systems
  Dr F Sugden
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Summary. Upland areas have long been important regions of out-migration, given the fragile ecological resource base, population pressure and peripheral status within larger national economies.
  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
  Rewilding the great wood of Caledon: using remote sensing to understand natural forest regeneration in Scotland
  Dr C Ryan, Dr A Keane
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Scotland and the UK are deforested countries. In recent years, the entwined ideas of rewilding and natural forest regeneration have influenced land use, particularly in upland Scotland.
