White Rose BBSRC DTP studentship: The Molecular and Cellular basis of Strigolactone Signalling: From Nucleus to Membrane

Strigolactones are key regulators of shoot architecture in flowering plants. Strigolactones act by promoting degradation of ‘SMAX1-like’ proteins, through a short signalling pathway, but the downstream effects of strigolactone signalling remain poorly characterised. Read more

Do tree microbiomes clean up urban air pollution?

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Assess the distribution, activity, and microbial ecology of air pollutant degrading bacteria. Use metagenomics approaches to characterise environmental plant microbiomes . Read more

Global diversity and ecosystem functions of plant-microbe symbioses

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown and abundant plant- mycorrhizal symbiosis with global distribution. Read more

Physiological response of quinoa to environmental stress: effects on nutritional profile, plant immunity, pest management and soil carbon content (OP2257)

Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is an Andean crop with numerous beneficial applications in agriculture/food systems, resulting from its excellent nutritional profile, high adaptability to grow on marginal lands (unsuitable for major crops) and tolerance to extreme environmental conditions (high temperatures, drought, and saline soils).

Establishing the empirical basis for microclimatic buffering as a nature-based adaptation to climate change (OP2204)

Project Description. Nature-based ‘autonomous’ adaptations to climate change have the potential to mitigate adverse impacts on biodiversity, yet their efficacy at broad scales and across multiple taxonomic groups remains poorly understood1. Read more

Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more
