Mastership by Research: Hydrological connectivity in peatlands: the impact of planted woodlands on adjacent peatlands

Deadline for applications: 29 March 2023

During the development of the June 2022 Trees and Peat Guidance supporting the ‘Decision support framework for peatland protection, the establishment of new woodland and re-establishment of existing woodland on peatland in England’, a key area lacking evidence was that of hydrological connection between adjacent areas of peatland, which is important in the contexts of setting buffer distances for both woodland creation and future use of existing wooded peatland. This research is aimed at providing evidence that can be used to review and strengthen the guidance.

Offered with the University of Leeds.
