ERC funding is sought in international competition with scientific excellence as the sole criterion for selection. Daniel Metcalfe is awarded €1.75 million over five years. Metcalfe's ERC project will provide the first global picture of how plant-eating insects affect the amount of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, in the world's forests. This will enable researchers to gain a better understanding of nutrient flow in different ecosystems, and better able to predict the effects of global changes. Thereby also increasing the understanding of how the world's forests can best be handled when the amount and composition of nutrients is changing.

For Daniel Metcalfe, the ERC grant means that he can create his own research group and do more studies both in Arctic climate in the tropics.

- This is a dream project for me. Now there are no excuses anymore, now this is what I'll be doing, he says.
