  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.
  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.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Non-exhaust particulate matter from road traffic
  Prof R Harrison, Dr Z Shi
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Our group has been at the forefront of work internationally to characterise and quantify non-exhaust emissions from road traffic1.
