Valuation of Welsh Forest Resources
This study estimates using a natural capital accounting approach the value of five ecosystem goods and services provided by woodlands in Wales: standing timber, timber extraction, carbon sequestration, recreation and air quality improvement.
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.
Carbon accumulation and loss in afforested peatlands
PhD studentship •Quantifying carbon accumulation and loss in afforested peatlands
Putting UK woodland bats on the map
We are working with Bat Conservation Trust to develop and trial a national citizen science field survey scheme and species distribution modelling framework for UK woodland bats.
Cultural ecosystem services, values and benefits
cultural ecosystem services, cultural ecosystem benefits, wellbeing benefits, social and environmental justice, green infrastructure, urban forestry, trees and woodlands.
New approach for evaluating options for climate change adaptions in forestry - Action Expiration Chart
Evaluation of robust climate change adaptation options for forest planning, management, and policy making using new approach.
Woodland Creation and Ecological Networks (WrEN) Project
WrEN is a long-term, large-scale ‘natural experiment’ which is studying the influence of different site and landscape attributes on biodiversity in a chronosequence of secondary woodlands.
Shared values of ecosystems
Shared values of ecosystem services, their importance and methods to enable their formation and expression.
