Pete Manning
Dr Pete Manning is a Research Fellow at Imperial College Londons Grantham Institute for Climate Change and NERC Centre for Population Biology (CPB). His research interests lie in plant community and ecosystems ecology. His current work relates to plant-soil relationships and the role that these play in the response of carbon, water and nitrogen cycling to global change factors such as nitrogen enrichment and climate change. Recently Pete has also worked with UNEP-WCMC on the Rapid Response Assessment 'The Natural Fix: The Role of Ecosystems in Climate Mitigation', a global level evaluation of ecosystem carbon storage potential.

Pete joined Imperial in 2002 after completing a PhD in plant ecology at the Centre for Ecology and Ecology and the University of Liverpool. His early work at the CPB was based in the Ecotron Controlled Environment Facility, a highly controlled system of 16 replicated ecosystems, in which climate, pollution and biodiversity can be experimentally manipulated. Prior to his PhD studies Pete completed an MRes in Ecology and Environmental Management at the University of York and a BSc in Ecology from the University of Sheffield.
