Developing low-cost methods for tropical forest and peatland carbon monitoring PhD

Tropical forests and peatlands are globally important carbon stores but are under threat from land use and climate change. To offset hard-to-reduce emissions, many businesses invest in carbon credit schemes to preserve and/or restore these ecosystems. Read more

Contaminants in saprolite: an overlooked hotspot of environmental concern PhD

Increasing attention is being placed on the transfer and storage of contaminants in soils, including microplastics, pharmaceuticals (PPCPs), bacteria, and hydrocarbons (PAHs). Recent research has developed methods to detect the presence of these contaminants in, and track their movement through, the soil profile.

An early warning system for food supply chain resilience to environmental shocks PhD

An exciting PhD studentship opportunity to develop an early warning system - an integrated emerging risk information and communication system that engagesexperts, policy makers, and citizens, in analysing and interpreting environmental change and its potential impacts on food chain resilience.

POSITIVE - evaluating Plant pOlyphenol effects on SoIl funcTional dIVErsity

Background. Crop breeding has changed the nutritional, mineral and non-nutritional composition of crop plants. Non-nutritionals include metabolites such as polyphenols and these have historically been considered as ‘anti-nutritionals’, reflecting their effect upon animal health when fed as major components in diets.

QUADRAT DTP: Eco-evolutionary responses of soil microbes to drought stress

Background and rationale. Soil microbes are critical in maintaining the carbon balance in terrestrial ecosystems. This balance of microbial decomposition and stabilisation of organic matter can shift under altered environmental conditions. Read more

Global distribution of environmental impacts from changes to UK food consumption

Project summary. This project will investigate how changes in UK food consumption would be meditated through international trade in food commodities to distribute agricultural and associated environmental changes globally. Read more

NERC Panorama DTP - Remote sensing soil processes and health for improved Carbon sequestration (ReSSPHICS)

Overview. AIM. Soils are a key component of terrestrial ecosystems and provide multiple ecosystem services to humans, including the provision of food from agriculture. Soil organic carbon (SOC) loss due to intensive agricultural practices, and climate change is a major threat to global food security. Read more

Response of temperate forests to fertilisation: implications for climate change mitigation

Afforestation is seen as a major contributor to meeting the Paris Agreement carbon (C) targets. However, the potential for C uptake, and thus the potential climate mitigation capacity of forests has been severely overestimated by global circulation models not accounting for nutrient limitation.
