    Exploring land manager views of payments for ecosystem services, networks and learning

    Research exploring evidence for land manager perceptions and understandings of the concept of payments for ecosystem services, the use of formal and informal networks and the ways in which land managers learn from others.

    Land Use and Ecosystem Services

    The research aims to increase our understanding of how woodlands and wooded landscapes provide a diverse range of ecosystem services (ES), and to help policymakers, forest managers and planners understand and assess how the specific placement and management of woodlands affects ES delivery at various scales.

    Using DNA barcoding and metabarcoding to detect species and improve forest biodiversity monitoring

    Lead Author: Nadia Barsoum
    Growing threats to biodiversity from pressure of land use, climate change, and invasive pests and diseases highlight the importance of obtaining accurate baseline measurements of current forest biodiversity, as well as improved monitoring to detect early signals of change. Developments in molecular techniques have advanced to the stage that there are now practical methods available […]

    A review of the effects of forest management intensity on ecosystem services for northern European temperate forests with a focus on the UK

    Lead Author: Louise Sing
    Abstract Ecosystem services (ES) are the benefits that people receive from ecosystems. Understanding the impact of forest management on their supply can inform policy and practice for meeting societal demand. The objectives of this paper are to identify and review the effect of management intensity on priority ES supply and identify synergies and trade-offs among ES […]

    Quantifying the hydrological effect of woodland creation in the Camowen and Drumragh catchments, Omagh, Northern Ireland

    Lead Author: Huw Thomas
    The ‘Runoff Curve Number’ rainfall-runoff model, developed by the USDA Soil Conservation Service, was applied to the catchments draining to Omagh, to assess the potential effect of woodland creation on flood flows. The ‘Runoff Curve Number’ method provides a potentially powerful tool for evaluating the impact of land use change and management on surface runoff, as […]

    EcoServ-GIS: a toolkit for mapping ecosystem services

    Lead Author: J.P. Winn
    Mapping ecosystem services at a county and region scale The EcoServ-GIS toolkit generates maps illustrating the need for each service as well as the capacity for service provision, using scientifically-based, standardised methods and widely available datasets. It provides users with the facility to overlay these maps to show how well demand and capacity coincide in space, […]
