Peatland ecosystem services
Monitoring ecosystem services from afforested peatland and the effects of bog restoration and conversion to peatland edge woodland
Strathard: a landscape to live, work and play
This project aims to develop more sustainable and resilient land and water management plans in Strathard by taking an ecosystems approach which considers the wider impacts and benefits of a range of management plans on ecosystem services, the landscape and communities living there.
Forest Research is collaborating with several organisations in order to harness this novel DNA approach for a range of applications in which monitoring of forest biodiversity is required.
