THRIVE (2018-2022)

THRIVE (2018-2022) - Plant population performance and adaptation in response to land use along environmental gradients.

What does it take for plant populations to thrive in a rapidly changing world? Humans are changing the environment, which presents both challenges and opportunities for plant population persistence. THRIVE will use data on growth, survival and reproduction of plant populations in the field under a wide range of environmental conditions to test the effects of land-use on life history strategy, plant traits, population performance and adaptation. For more information contact Prof. Yvonne Buckley, www.plantpopnet.com

Volcano

Exploration and optimization of a novel negative carbon emission technology using enhanced plant-mediated chemical weathering’ (2018-2020) is a proof-of-concept project aiming to develop a protocol for enhanced plant-mediated carbon sequestration for future field-based trials. For more information contact Prof. Jennifer C. McElwain.
