  Tracing the water trees use, and when they use it, as they get more CO2: implications for coping with water stress
  Dr J Larsen, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
It remains fundamentally unclear how increasing CO2 concentrations will affect plant water use. On the one hand, water use may decrease because stomata can open less frequently.
  Investigating the Impact of Volatile Organic Compounds Released by Plants in Response to Biotic and Abiotic Stressors under ambient and elevated CO2 conditions (VOC–Plant–Stress–CO2).
  Dr C Pfrang, Dr R Girling
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
There are currently about 32 million trees alongside Britain’s trunk roads and motorways; this January plans were announced to plant 50 million trees to create a "Northern Forest" over the next 25 years along a 120-mile stretch of the M62 backed by £6 million from the Government; the attached image depicts the M27 that has been running for the last 40 years along the edge of the New Forest.
  Managing resilience of a temperate forest to future climate change with a nutrient bent
  Dr Z Shi, Dr T Pugh
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
More than a quarter of recent anthropogenic CO2 emissions are absorbed by forests. This is primarily attributed to enhanced plant growth as a result of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration (eCO2).
  The Near Miss Effect of Forest Fires
  Prof D J Maddison, Dr A Beltran
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
A large number of studies employ the hedonic house-price technique to investigate the effect of natural disasters on property prices.
  The role of retrotransposon mobilization in forest trees genome adaptation.
  Dr M Catoni, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Environmental changes and biotic stresses are powerful drivers of evolutional adaptation. However, the main contributors to genome plasticity are yet not fully characterized.
  Atmospheric water plumes; mapping water transport through the forest canopy using distributed sensor networks
  Dr N Kettridge, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Evapotranspiration provides the primary water loss mechanism from forests, controlling catchment hydrological dynamics, forest productivity and ecosystem biodiversity.
  Identifying tipping points regulating greenhouse gas emission from soils at two forest free air co2 enrichment experiments
  Dr S Ullah, Dr S Yamulki, Prof E Pendall
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Globally, natural ecosystems including forests are responsible for ~60% of the total nitrous oxide (N2O) gas emitted from soils, and consume ~25% of the total atmospheric methane (CH4).
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…
  The importance of land-atmosphere interactions for future changes in extreme rainfall in convection permitting models
  Dr M Widmann, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Anthropogenic climate change is expected to lead to substantial increase in extreme precipitation with impact on flooding. However, simulating precipitation and how it may change in the future is still a major challenge, and associated with large uncertainties.
  Sustainable Management of Agricultural Soils: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emission and Enhancing Natural Fertility
  Dr S Ullah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Soil is fundamental to life and is vulnerable to losses in stored carbon (C) and productivity, particularly under intensive agriculture.1 For example, 133…
