  Forest Ecology in Fantasy Fiction: Mobilising the Imaginative Resources of Fantasy Fiction for Living with Forests
  Prof J Holmes, Dr J P Sadler, Dr W Tattersdill
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since at least the late nineteenth century, writers have used fantasy fiction to reimagine humanity’s relationship to nature. From lush rainforests to temperate woodlands, forests have been central to this enterprise.
  Forest resilience and recovery through the lens of volcanic disturbances
  Dr S Watt, Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Explosive volcanic eruptions represent a major natural perturbation to surrounding environments.
  From branch to forest to globe: How do trees choices regarding growth affect forest responses to increased carbon dioxide levels?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J Larsen, Dr B Smith, Prof B Medlyn
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forests of the future will be subjected to levels of carbon dioxide for which there is no analogue in the current world.
  Fusion Forest : securing disease resilience through pattern variability
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trees have proficient tools that allow them to survive biological threats. However, we have seen recent outbreaks of tree diseases that we were not prepared for.
  Identification of filamentous pathogens in leaves using Raman spectroscopy
  Dr P Goldberg Oppenheimer, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will tackle the complex issue of filamentous pathogens in leaves, with a specific target to identify key chemical indicators of Ash Dieback (AD) and Oak Powdery Mildew (OPM).
  Investigating how changing interactions between humans and elephants affect forest socio-ecological systems in drylands: A case study of Mukogodo Forest, Kenya
  Dr B Bersaglio, Dr F Nunan
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

A recent report by the Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services claims that global biodiversity is declining at an unprecedented rate.
  Priming of defence in an elevated CO2 world
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic activity has raised the atmospheric and this is predicted to rise further over the course of the 21st century. Whilst elevated CO2 (eCO2) may increase plant productivity, several publications have described changes in the defensive capacity of plants after exposure of eCO2.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution.
  Dr M Catoni, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  Understanding and improving wind risk assessment for forests - combining geotechnical and wind engineering and plant science
  Prof Mark Sterling, Prof N Metje
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Windthrow arises as a result of the interaction of the wind with the tree(s) and the corresponding wind-induced force exceeding the root anchorage strength of the tree.
  Wastewater treatment trees: can forest filters help solve our wastewater crisis?
  Prof P Davies, Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The release of raw and untreated sewage into urban and peri-urban surface water and groundwater supplies in emerging economies is one of the largest human health and water resource challenges facing the globe.
