Winners and losers: biodiversity responses to degradation in Amazonian forests and freshwaters

The Amazon Forest is one of the Earth’s most important ecosystems. it accounts for c.50% of all remaining rainforests, while housing at least 10% of all known biodiversity on the planet. Read more

Lonely at the top? How developmentally isolated are shoot apical meristems

About the project. One of the defining aspects of land plant development is the ability to continually produce new organs from pools of self-renewing stem cells known as meristems. Read more

How is developmental timing regulated in plants?

About the project. During their life-cycles multicellular organisms progress through a series of different developmental phases. To ensure that development occurs in the right sequence and at an appropriate rate, the correct timing of transitions between phases is essential. Read more

Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants – investigating the role of myosin receptors

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol. Read more

Developing nanomaterials to enhance and future-proof crop yields

Plants are critical for food security, carbon capture and the production of many of the materials we rely on. Novel ways to enhance plant growth and productivity are being investigated, and one of these is by looking at modifying plants at the nanoscale. Read more

Fish, predator and collective behaviour

How do animals interact in groups? What benefits and costs can this bring? What are the ecological effects of social living? How do differences between… Read more

The genomics basis of major evolutionary transitions

Life on Earth has undergone several major evolutionary transitions that dramatically changed their biology. These include exciting innovations such as the emergence of multicellular organisms (animals, plants, fungi), the evolution of terrestrial organisms, or parasitism. Read more

Environmental drivers and conservation status of Amazonian biodiversity

The Amazon plays a crucial role in international strategies to mitigate global climate and biodiversity crises. Amazonian ecosystems are among the world's most biodiverse and contribute to environmental services at multiple spatial scales. Read more

Plants on the edge: examining the resilience of the vegetation to climate extremes

Project Background. Climate change is rapidly altering the growing conditions of terrestrial ecosystems, with widespread evidence of more frequent, more intense, and longer-duration droughts and heatwaves. Read more
