Project Description

This will be achieved via the chemical analysis of isolated single grass pollen grains from Lake Nar, Turkey, compared to traditional, visual, pollen analysis. The chemical fingerprinting will allow domesticated crops to be recognised compared to wild relatives, and changes in species diversity through time to be analysed.

The PhD will place the inception, diversification, and dominance of cereal agriculture through the Holocene into a temporal and environmental framework. The student will compare analysis of the core pollen with analysis of selected wheat pollen from plants grown in controlled environments under a variety of stress conditions.

This PhD will be based in the School of Biosciences. For further details, please contact Dr Barry Lomax: [Email Address Removed]
