Project Highlights. Novel research to describe forest nitrogen cycle dynamics in response to global change. Access to one of the most extensively characterised ancient woodlands in the UK, facilitating opportunities for wider collaboration in forest ecology research. Read more

Developing low-cost methods for tropical forest and peatland carbon monitoring PhD

Tropical forests and peatlands are globally important carbon stores but are under threat from land use and climate change. To offset hard-to-reduce emissions, many businesses invest in carbon credit schemes to preserve and/or restore these ecosystems. Read more

Unhappy Bedfellows? Interactions between the invasive species Sargassum muticum and Threatened seagrass beds (Zostera spp).

Successful invasive species often escape top-down pressure in the early stages of invasion. However, emerging evidence suggests that over time local animal consumers can adapt to control and moderate nonnatives by incorporating invading species into their diets. Read more

Assessment of pathogen impacts on novel forestry species and provenances in the UK to aid understanding of future commercial potential

Forests in the UK are in a vulnerable position as epidemics of invasive pathogens such as Phytophthora ramorum on larches and Dothistroma septosporum on pines have narrowed the range of commercially viable timber species. Read more

Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK

Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis. Read more
