Quantifying Blue Carbon: kelp contribution to carbon sequestration in marine sediments

Even with carbon emission-reduction commitments the world is facing an average 3.5°C temperature rise. The promotion of kelp-derived blue carbon sequestration is emerging as an exciting opportunity to ameliorate climate change. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Ancient grain for modern times: Diversity of naked barley for human health and agroecology.

Project Background.  Naked barley (also known as hull-less barley) has been grown and eaten for thousands of years, but has been largely forgotten in Europe, even though the grain offers solutions to current challenges of poor diet and unsustainable food systems. Read more

Life at the limits – algal physiology under extreme conditions

Summary. This project will characterise the limits of life in cryophilic algae by studying how the growth, physiology and metabolic traits are altered in low pressure and low temperature environmental chambers. Read more

Plant-fungal coevolution and speciation on a remote oceanic island

Our understanding of how species originate (speciation) has changed considerably since Darwin's seminal work. One aspect, however, that has been ignored is the role that microbes can play in driving speciation. Read more

Environmental Effects on Inbreeding Depression (Distance Learning Project)

Background. Inbreeding is an important issue in evolutionary biology and ecology because of its profound implications for genetic variation and the evolution of mating systems and reproductive strategies. Read more
