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.

Exploring the links between invasive plants, capybara and disease vectors in São Paulo State, Brazil

Overview. Plant invasions can have major ecological impacts on the systems they colonise, and these impacts can be indirect, mediated through the interactions between resident species and invasive plants. Read more

Flower choices and pollen foraging in bees

  Research Group: EBE
Background and Research Questions. One third of crops grown worldwide benefit from pollination by insects, therefore plant-pollinator interactions are of significant importance to global food security. Read more

NERC Panorama DTP - Uncovering the hidden biodiversity benefits of beavers using environmental DNA

Overview. Biodiversity is being lost at an unparalleled rate, particularly in freshwater ecosystems. Reintroduction of keystone species is considered part of the solution to the freshwater biodiversity crisis. Read more

Beavers and climate change mitigation in freshwater systems

Overview. The reintroduction of beavers has been a conservation success story repeated across Europe and North America. By damming small rivers and creating pools, ponds and canals, beavers have restored lost ecosystem services such as. 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.

Assessing the global impacts of island bird extinctions

Islands have long fascinated and inspired ecologists and biologists given the large amounts of diversity they support (20% of global species in 3.5% of the land), including large numbers of unique endemic species found nowhere else. Read more
