  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Applications accepted all year round
Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
  (BBSRC DTP) Manipulating plant genetic diversity to improve resilience in grasslands
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For years the agricultural sector has pursued cultivation of crops with identical genetic properties so that variation in the resulting phenotype is as small as possible.
  (BBSRC DTP) Multi-omics Approach to Monitoring Marine Bycatch
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr M Buckley, Dr H Shiels, Dr C Walton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The sustainability of fish within Europe is becoming an increasing concern, with overfishing creating a depletion of fish stocks below maintainable limits.
