Exploiting big data to understand access to greenspace in the UK

Greenspaces provide incredible valuable benefits to people. For example, there are over 62,000 urban greenspaces in Great Britain, estimated to provide just over £130 billion to those living nearby. Read more

Why are there so few C2 grasses?

Overview (<300 words). The vast majority of plant species use C3 photosynthesis. However, a turbo-charged form of photosynthesis called C4 evolved independently in nearly 70 lineages and is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops. Read more

Formula vs Function: Understanding How Different Formulations of Plant Protection Products Impact Toxicity

Partner Organisations. HSE and Syngenta. Plant protection products (PPP) containing the same active substance can take many different forms, for example emulsifiable concentrate, wettable powder or suspension concentrate. Read more

White Rose BBSRC DTP studentship: The Molecular and Cellular basis of Strigolactone Signalling: From Nucleus to Membrane

Strigolactones are key regulators of shoot architecture in flowering plants. Strigolactones act by promoting degradation of ‘SMAX1-like’ proteins, through a short signalling pathway, but the downstream effects of strigolactone signalling remain poorly characterised. Read more
