  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Prof M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  SCENARIO: When (plant) life gets in the way: Investigating how vegetation attenuates sex pheromone odour plumes and communication between conspecifics
  Dr R Girling, Prof A Robins, Prof R Cardé
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary studentship will investigate how the plume dynamics of sex pheromone signals released by moths are attenuated by vegetation and the effects that this has on moth mate searching and ecology.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round
Man stores many different products for a variety of purposes. Stored products include food, wood, clothing and also items in museums stored for posterity.
  Forensic acarology: the importance of mites in forensic investigations
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round
Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  The biological control of insect pests using predators and parasitoids
  Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on building an understanding of the behavioural and physiological interactions of insect pests and their natural enemies (predators and parasitoids), and using this to develop better approaches to insect pest management in the field.
