Natural Environment Research Council, NERC invites Expressions of Interest for a major new collaborative five-year research programme on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Processes in Human Modified Tropical Forests.
The aim of the programme is to carry out site studies in Sabah, Malaysia, and Brazil that significantly improve our understanding of the links between biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles in tropical forests. The Brazilian part of the programme will be delivered in partnership with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
The Brazil-based part of the programme will be jointly funded by NERC and FAPESP and has been allocated funding of up to £3.2m (£1.6m from NERC and R$5m from FAPESP).
Expressions of Interest to deliver the Brazil-based element of the programme are invited from partnerships involving researchers eligible for funding from NERC and FAPESP. This call closes at 16:00 BST (GMT+1) on Thursday 16th August 2012.
