  Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply.
  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Mosses, rock-weathering, and global environmental change: is the present the key to the past (and future?)
  Dr A Brasier, Dr S Woodin
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
This exciting project links geological and ecological research to investigate the role of bryophytes in terrestrial weathering and biogeochemical cycling.
  New spectacles for sustainable management of tropical agroforestry systems - linking hydrological and biogeochemical approaches to better understand water and carbon cycling
  Dr J Geris, Prof J Smith, Dr L Munoz-Viller
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Plant–soil-water interactions play a central role in biogeochemical (carbon) and hydrological ecosystem cycling.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Reconstructing past thaumarchaeotal ecology and evolution in peatland soils
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Analyses of past ecological and evolutionary adaptation processes are essential to understand present and future biodiversity processes.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
