Assessment of pathogen impacts on novel forestry species and provenances in the UK to aid understanding of future commercial potential

Forests in the UK are in a vulnerable position as epidemics of invasive pathogens such as Phytophthora ramorum on larches and Dothistroma septosporum on pines have narrowed the range of commercially viable timber species. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Ancient grain for modern times: Diversity of naked barley for human health and agroecology.

Project Background.  Naked barley (also known as hull-less barley) has been grown and eaten for thousands of years, but has been largely forgotten in Europe, even though the grain offers solutions to current challenges of poor diet and unsustainable food systems. Read more

Water-table management in lowland agricultural peatlands for climate change mitigation

Project overview. Peatlands are carbon-rich wetlands that occupy just three per cent of the world’s land surface area (12% in the UK) but store a similar amount of carbon to all terrestrial vegetation, as well as supporting unique biodiversity. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more
