MPhil/PhD Opportunity

Title: Soil biodiversity function in enhancement of tree establishment and growth in urban settings.

This project aims to investigate the effects of soil invertebrates (particularly earthworms and microarthropods) in enhancement of tree establishment and growth within the built environment. The role of these soil biotic groups as biological indicators of soil quality will be investigated, including within engineered tree-pit systems.

This project is a collaboration between the School of Natural Sciences at University of Central Lancashire and Forest Research.

Closing Date: 1 st November 2023
