  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying the importance of tree floral resources for pollinators in urban landscapes (Ref: OP20273)
  Dr K Baldock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Urban expansion is one of the main threats to global biodiversity, with 70% of the global human population predicted to be living in urban areas by 2050.
  Gardening for wildlife: Drivers of avian productivity
  Dr S. J Reynolds, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world is urbanising rapidly and by 2050 it is predicted that 60% of the global human population will be living in urban areas.
  QUADRAT DTP: Greening cities: how do street trees contribute to urban biodiversity and ecosystem functions?
  Dr P Caplat, Prof D Burslem, Prof G Keeffe
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will investigate the role of an iconic but poorly studied system (street trees) for enhancing urban biodiversity and support ecosystem functions (e.g.
  Time, light and sound: nocturnal predators in landscapes of the anthropocene
  Dr D Dominoni, Dr M Bogdanova
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urbanisation is one of the most pervasive forms of habitat change. More than half of the world’s human population now resides in urban areas, and urban land cover is projected to triple between 2000 and 2030.
  Understanding urban trees: form, function and vulnerability
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Prof C P Osborne, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than half the global population already live in urban areas and that figure will rise to 66% by 2020. Ecosystem service provision in urban areas is therefore becoming increasingly important for people’s quality of life and the wider environment, to which urban trees make a disproportionate contribution.
  Green cities: how our decisions affect landscape biodiversity
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)

  ONE Planet DTP - “Quantifying the impact of artificial lawns on the structure and function of urban ecosystems” (Ref: OP20295)
  Dr M Goddard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Understanding how the management of urban habitats affects biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services is essential for creating sustainable and liveable cities.
  Private gardens: an underexploited opportunity for enhancing biodiversity and ecosystem service provision (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/GES/GODDARD)
  Dr M Goddard
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Creating sustainable cities for both people and wildlife requires an understanding of how the planning, design and governance of urban green spaces can maximise biodiversity and ecosystem service provision (Scott et al.
  Do wooded networks (Treescapes) enhance bird dispersal and movement in cities?
  Dr J P Sadler, Dr S. J Reynolds, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities are characterised by highly modified and complex habitats comprising a rich mosaic of greenspaces with wooded networks (Fig.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
