About the Project
During this project the student will be trained in a variety of fieldwork techniques and will generate new data sets to:
1) investigate the links between plant community composition and natural pest regulation services provided by agroforestry; and
2) develop and test novel management practices to provide more eco-functional agroforestry systems with enhanced pest regulation services
Using the data generated in these studies in combination with our pre-existing data sets on carbon, biodiversity, pollination and yield (crop and tree) in agroforestry systems, the student will gain training in quantitative methods to:
3) model the economic value of both pest regulation and pollination services provided by agroforestry systems; and
4) investigate the trade-offs between the different ecosystem services provided by agroforestry."
PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS NOW THE 30TH JULY 2017
Applicants will have, or be about to obtain, a Masters qualification (MSc, MRes or MSci/MMath) in a relevant discipline. Exceptional students at Bachelors level without a Masters will be considered. Relevant post-graduate experience will also be taken into account.
