EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health at the University of Edinburgh

 . The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases, is delighted to open applications to the sixth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme. Read more

Plant communities and climbers in degraded and regenerating forest landscapes of Borneo

Tropical forests are becoming increasingly fragmented as a result of land-use pressures. Due to different land-use histories, remnant forests are not created equal; some are more structurally intact than others and this can alter the capacity for a forest to naturally regenerate. Read more

EASTBIO The role of legumes in achieving net zero: reducing nitrogen losses and improving soil health

Scottish Government has pledged to meet a net-zero target for GHG emissions in Scotland by 2045 and the UK government by 2050. However, current agricultural practices result in high nitrogen (N) losses through nitrate leaching and emissions of the greenhouse gas (GHG) nitrous oxide (N2O).

EASTBIO Integrating trees into agricultural landscapes to enhance biodiversity and associated ecosystem services

Tree planting is at the forefront of the current environmental agenda to mitigate climate change and the biodiversity crisis. For instance, the Scottish Government has a current target of planting 12,000 ha of trees per year, increasing to 15,000 ha from 2024. Read more

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

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more

EASTBIO Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more
