Exploiting big data to understand access to greenspace in the UK

Greenspaces provide incredible valuable benefits to people. For example, there are over 62,000 urban greenspaces in Great Britain, estimated to provide just over £130 billion to those living nearby. Read more

Cold blood in warming winters: physiological impacts of climate change on UK reptiles

Environmental change is causing temperatures to rise across the globe - how this will affect the distribution and abundance of species is therefore an important current focus for ecologists worldwide. Read more

Why are there so few C2 grasses?

Overview (<300 words). The vast majority of plant species use C3 photosynthesis. However, a turbo-charged form of photosynthesis called C4 evolved independently in nearly 70 lineages and is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops. 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

Identifying and protecting coral reef adaptive potential

Background. The recent unprecedented levels of heat stress have profoundly altered many coral reef communities globally, affecting ~1 billion people whose livelihoods depend directly on them. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the peat microbiome and metabolome: from vegetation to organic matter molecules and microbes

Peatlands are organic matter rich soils that provide countless benefits and ecological services. They represent the largest terrestrial carbon store, containing twice as much carbon as the entire forest biomass on this planet. Read more

Formula vs Function: Understanding How Different Formulations of Plant Protection Products Impact Toxicity

Partner Organisations. HSE and Syngenta. Plant protection products (PPP) containing the same active substance can take many different forms, for example emulsifiable concentrate, wettable powder or suspension concentrate. Read more
