Ancient woodlands and development-related threats: How can we develop effective, targeted mitigation to protect these valuable ‘Keepers of Time’?

Ancient woodlands provide some of Great Britain’s most biodiverse and culturally significant habitats. Current planning policy aims to protect these ‘irreplaceable’ habitats from the direct and indirect impacts of nearby development. Read more

Mycorrhizal mediation of woodland expansion on former farmland

We seek a candidate for a PhD project aimed at providing practical solutions to address the global issue of climate change by maximising the success of tree planting as a mitigation strategy. Read more

The restoration potential of African savannas

Summary. Study the ecology of restoration in African savannas using a mixture of fieldwork, remote sensing and modelling. Compare biodiversity and carbon stocks between restoration sites and old-growth savannas in collaboration with non-academic partners and an international network of scientists. . Read more

MRes Interdisciplinary Studies - Whispering Trees: A Warning in the Wind

The movement of trees by wind creates a unique acoustic environment. We propose that by measuring and characterising this psithurism (the sound of wind in trees), sound can be a medium to understand tree stability in different weather and seasons, ultimately to manage treefall risk. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - Untangling the effects of lianas on tropical forest diversity

Over the past 10 years, it has been recognised that parasitic plants, lianas, play an important role in the structure of tropical systems through limiting the growth of trees and increasing their mortality, as well as slowing the colonisation of gaps. Read more

Fully-funded ACCE Biology project: Resilient woodlands to support biodiversity recovery

Lead supervisor. Prof Jane Hill (University of York Department of Biology). Co-supervisors: Dr Michael Pocock (UKCEH) Dr Christopher Nichols (Woodland Trust) Dr Mark Wilson (British Trust for Ornithology) Prof Colin Beale (York). Read more

Quantifying biodiversity benefits and disease disbenefits from woodland creation projects

Background. Woodland creation projects and ecological networks for nature (eg Natural England Nature Networks) are increasing in the UK under government policies to increase tree planting for climate change mitigation and to promote biodiversity by enabling species dispersal and movements.
