Nature based vocational training leading to human wellbeing in Skåne, Sweden
The Nature Integration Programme facilitates sustainable integration of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants into society. A large number of these groups have been taken in by Sweden in recent years.
BioCoRe: An interactive/adaptable landscape ecology approach for targeting restoration
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...
Valuing and governing tree and forest ecosystem services
This research provides new insights into how to recognise and understand the value of ecosystem services provided by trees and forests.
Exploring changes in ecosystem services under varying scenarios
Exploration of the resilience of woodlands to future change by assessing how ecosystem service values and natural capital stocks of woodlands may be affected by change through the application of the UK National Ecosystem Assessment (UK NEA) scenarios and different management approaches, e.g. forest diversification through the application of forest management alternatives
Delivering Resilient Forests
Resilient forests are important if our trees are to cope better with changing environmental conditions and threats from pests and diseases. This page provides information on the publications produced as part of Forest Research's 'Delivering Resilient Forests' programme of research.
BRIGIT - A consortium for enhancing UK surveillance and response to Xylella fastidiosa
A multi-partner GB wide transdisciplinary project that takes a holistic approach to enhance diagnostics, identify factors that could lead to spread and formulate response strategies to mitigate the devastating effects of X. fastidiosa.
NHS Greenspace in Scotland
NHS Greenspace in Scotland is being developed through a series of demonstration projects at different hospital sites. Staff, patients, visitors and local communities are the beneficiaries of improvements to NHS Greenspace.
Harvested Wood Products and Carbon Substitution
This study reviews approaches to accounting for carbon storage and carbon substitution benefits of harvested wood products under existing carbon market standards, and considers how the UK Woodland Carbon Code - which at present covers climate change mitigation benefits of afforestation in terms of carbon sequestration, might be extended.
PRotect Oak Ecosystems (PuRpOsE)
This project is providing understanding of the current and future health threats to native oaks in the UK. It is focussing on Acute Oak Decline (AOD).
SCALEFORES: Scaling Rules For Ecosystem Service Mapping
We are working with Southampton University and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology to develop and test novel modelling frameworks to explore the drivers of ecosystem services at different spatial scales in order to predict and map their delivery.
