  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 impact of forest roads on the rate of biological invasion
  Dr N Petrovskaya
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Roads can play an important role in the spread of invasive plant species by serving as corridors for movement as well as providing prime habitat for establishment (see reference [1]).
  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.
  Language and landscape: the cross-linguistic perspective on ‘forests’
  Dr A Corr
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
What is a forest? Interdisciplinary research in geographic information sciences and linguistics shows that not only do official bodies differ in the criteria and measurements used to arrive at a definition, but that the world’s languages provide a variety of answers, depending on how their linguistic systems encode landscape-related concepts.
  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.
  Tree-sewage symbiosis for healthy forests and people
  Prof P Davies, Dr D Hunt
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The deterioration of surface and groundwater quality in peri-urban areas of many emerging economies such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Vietnam is a serious cause for concern.
  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).
