  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Developing CRISPR genome engineering tools to understand nitrogen cycling by novel archaea (LEHTOVIRTA-MORLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Lehtovirta-Morley, Prof M Hutchings, Prof C Murrell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Nitrification is a central step in the global nitrogen cycle and a key driver of environmental change through its role in greenhouse gas emission and eutrophication.
  Sustainable management of soil nitrogen-fixing biodiversity in the Andean pasture (DEVEGAUEI19ARIES)
  Dr J De Vega, Dr C Di Maria, Dr S Ferrini
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This proposal targets the Colombian Andean pastures used for livestock grazing in the regions close to Bogota and Cali. The student will evaluate how different farming practices impact soil diversity there, focusing in nitrogen-fixing bacteria (NFB) communities that interact with legume plants.
  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Woodland Trust]
  Dr R Davies, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Woodland Trust. Scientific background. Intensive agriculture is one of the main drivers of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  Where technology and agricultural society meet: Exploring the spaces and places of interaction (ROSED1U19SF)
  Dr D Rose, Prof A Lovett
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
New technologies, including decision support tools, may contribute to the sustainable intensification of agriculture by improving productivity and efficiency.
