EASTBIO Assessing microbiome functional traits as indicators of soil health for sustainable agriculture

Soil is a multifunctional environment upon which our food security depends. The ability of soils to maintain particular functions which contribute to ecosystem services (such as food, fibre and energy production) is compromised by soil degradation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Biogeochemical cycling in paddy soils: Impact of climate-smart water management

BACKGROUND. Rice is a dominant human food but also the most water-demanding staple crop globally. This high-water use is due to its cultivation; in flooded field it requires 2-3 times more water than other arable crops. Read more

Global diversity and ecosystem functions of plant-microbe symbioses

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown and abundant plant- mycorrhizal symbiosis with global distribution. Read more

Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

Can Soft Fruit Species Engage With Beneficial Microorganisms And Restrict Oomycete Pathogens

Background. The world needs a sustainable and secure supply of fresh and affordable food. Increased demand for berries is being driven by their popularity and consumer belief in their healthful properties. Read more

The role of large mammals in determining forest structure, microclimate, and carbon storage potential

Project Background. Large mammal populations are increasing across Europe and their numbers are often controlled to realise forest restoration objectives because high browsing pressure impairs tree seedling recruitment. Read more
