Forests for water services: A step-by-step guide for payment schemes. Presentation by Tom Nisbet
The ForLand-Restoration project is developing a forest landscape restoration decision support platform. A collaborative research project funded by Climate-KIC to explore landscape restoration opportunities with stakeholders with the aim of reaching consensus on land use decisions.
A model was developed to represent the environment of Scotland, including its many different types of land managers and their views about woodland creation. By representing alternative scenarios in the model, the research explored how each set of choices might affect the benefits we get from the environment over the next 100 years and the contribution to woodland cover targets.
This research examines approaches to valuation of the mental health benefits of forests and proposes how monetary valuation of these benefits can be developed further. It examines metrics to quantify mental health impacts, methodologies to value changes in these and potential for incorporating associated values into natural capital accounting

Forests are crucial for biodiversity and also provide numerous ecosystem services that enhance human welfare. However, when studying forests, often the complexity of life belowground either goes unnoticed or it is studied in isolation from its aboveground component. Compartmentalising the above and belowground...
How we manage priority habitats within increasingly fragmented landscapes is a critical conservation issue. Practitioners and policy makers are often faced with the dilemma of deciding where to focus limited resources, but evidence on where particular actions will have the largest return on investment is lacking. To aid this decision...

Trees are fundamental components of our urban environment: they make cities more pleasant to live in, keep them cool in summer, reduce flooding, clean the air, provide homes for wildlife, and are a living connection to the past. Trees can also be a source of conflict between local authorities and...
In cities the climate is significantly warmer than in the surrounding countryside. This is known as the Urban Heat island (UHI) effect. The UHI effect is caused by a range of factors including hard building surfaces which absorb and radiate heat and the design of urban areas which means they...
