Quantifying greenhouse gas emissions in agri-ecosystems across multiple scales

  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
This exciting project will provide training for careers in sustainable agriculture. The project will develop new understanding of how grazed grassland management practices influence and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

Enhancing the sustainability of cut flower packaging MRes

This MSc by Research is funded by Arena Flowers (£18,000 bursary + fees for a year) and represents an exciting opportunity to make an impact towards sustainability of the cut-flower industry. Read more

Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

ECORISC CDT - Insect Population Responses to Air Pollution

Project Outline. This project will conduct national scale analyses of air pollution impacts on insect populations using long-term data-sets monitoring over 1,000 terrestrial insect species, and experimental analyses of direct and indirect effects of nitrogen dioxide pollution on insects. Read more

Forests in a changing environment: A study of nitrogen cycle feedbacks

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
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

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
