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.
Edinburgh Panda Consortium
The Edinburgh Consortium for Giant Panda Conservation and Forest Landscape Restoration aims to deliver a 10-year Research Programme in partnership with Wolong and Sichuan colleagues.
Forestry and Water Quality
Research to understand woodland-water interactions to reduce diffuse pollution and improve water quality
Impacts of forest fertilisation on water quality
This project aims to monitor the effects of aerial and hand forest fertiliser applications on water quality in sensitive water catchments.
Active Forests Programme Evaluation
The research is an evaluation of the Active Forest Programme run by Forestry Commission England and funded by Sport England.
Biodiversity and rotation length
Investigate how to incorporate biodiversity into an optimal rotation length model through literature review and data re-analysis of biodiversity links with stand age.
Opportunity mapping for targeting grant aid for water benefits
