Response of temperate forests to fertilisation: implications for climate change mitigation

Afforestation is seen as a major contributor to meeting the Paris Agreement carbon (C) targets. However, the potential for C uptake, and thus the potential climate mitigation capacity of forests has been severely overestimated by global circulation models not accounting for nutrient limitation.

Earth’s Great Oxidation: Redox and nutrient controls on the transition to a permanently oxygenated atmosphere

The rise of oxygen on the early Earth has been recognised as one of the most significant episodes in the history of our planet, and this initial rise set in motion a prolonged chain of events that ultimately resulted in the habitable conditions we now enjoy. Read more

Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. 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

Effects of seabird nutrient inputs on the productivity of coral reef fish communities

How coral reefs can sustain their extreme biomass of large reef fishes has continued to puzzle scientists. By living fast and dying young, small, bottom-dwelling (‘cryptobenthic’) reef fishes have been suggested as an important part of coral reef productivity, fuelling the foodweb. Read more
