  Facilitating a Natural Capital Approach in Marine Protected Area Governance in the UK - QUADRAT
  Dr T Potts, Prof A Longo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine Protected Area designation and management has significantly advanced over the past decade in the UK. In response to a range of EU, UK and devolved drivers, considerable progress has been made over the spatial protection of marine biodiversity in the inshore and offshore environment.
  Flying sentinels: using a long-distance migratory bird to assess exposure to POPs over two continents and their health consequences
  Dr P Bize, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human activities have for side effects the introduction in natural environments of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
  Fostering sustainability through organic waste re-use: drivers for adoption and pathways for diffusion in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Ice streams: present-to-palaeo - QUADRAT
  Prof B Rea, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ice streams are the arteries which drain large quantities of ice from the interior of ice sheets to the ice margin. From both palaeo and present they are known to display dynamical behaviour in relation to ice flow velocity.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
