Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).

  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
