  Optimising the long term control of invasive American mink in Patagonia to protect livelihoods and native biodiversity
  Prof X Lambin, Prof J Travis, Dr E Raffo, Dr I Rodríguez-Jorquera
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
A large number of highly damaging invasive non-native species (INNS) have become established worldwide and the problem is particularly acute in southern South America where many INNS are now so widespread that eradication is not an option.
  New spectacles for sustainable management of tropical agroforestry systems - linking hydrological and biogeochemical approaches to better understand water and carbon cycling
  Dr J Geris, Prof J Smith, Dr L Munoz-Villers
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Plant–soil-water interactions play a central role in biogeochemical (carbon) and hydrological ecosystem cycling.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  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.
  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.
