Project at University of Reading: Integrating trees into arable systems to improve soil health & provide resilience to climate change

Project description. Mitigating climate change and adapting to its impacts are two of the foremost challenges in agriculture. In the UK, increasing droughts and periods of heavy rain has significantly reduced arable production in recent years. Read more

SCENARIO: Developing a next-generation global biodiversity indicator to provide improved estimates of trends in wildlife abundance (ref. SC2022_22)

Global biodiversity is in decline (IPBES, 2020). Understanding how wildlife populations respond to anthropogenically induced climate-change, land-use change and other threats is critical to ‘bend-the-curve’ of biodiversity loss (Mace et al, 2020). Read more

SCENARIO: Does pollinator diversity moderate ecosystem function in agroforestry systems? (ref. SC2022_24)

Intensive agricultural approaches have resulted in significant declines in invertebrate biodiversity on a global scale, resulting from, amongst other things, habitat loss, homogenisation of farming landscapes, and increased use of insecticides. Read more

SCENARIO: The role of rats and mice in dissemination of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance (ref. SC2022_03)

Industry Co-supervisor. Dr Matthew Davies, Killgerm Chemicals Ltd. Background. Rats and mice? Sure, not many people like these animals, but there is no denying that they are one of the most prolific and widespread wildlife species. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Understanding the role of livestock management on invertebrate communities of wet pastures

The supervisory team comprises. Glyn Barrett (School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading), Robin Buxton (Patsy Wood Trust) and Ben Woodcock (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology). Read more

Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability. Read more
