Country, calypso or carimbó? The role of cultural value shifts in advancing Amazonian deforestation frontiers
This inter-disciplinary project addresses the intractable problem of how to reduce tropical deforestation. Current strategies such as REDD+ are failing and rooted in assumptions of… Read More »Country, calypso or carimbó? The role of cultural value shifts in advancing Amazonian deforestation frontiers
The world’s population relies on using nitrogen to boost crop yields and ensure sufficient food production. However, application of nitrogen fertilizer in excess of that… Read More »Stalagmite capture of groundwater nitrogen
Understanding how habitat quality, insect abundance and aquatic subsidies impact population change in a rapidly declining bird
Global declines in migrant bird populations are a major threat to the world’s ecosystems. Migrants provide vital ecosystem services at large spatial scales, and avian… Read More »Understanding how habitat quality, insect abundance and aquatic subsidies impact population change in a rapidly declining bird
Poor air quality is the number one environmental health threat in the UK, contributing to ~30,000 deaths per year, while also exacerbating several health conditions.… Read More »UK air pollution futures and their health impacts
Why this project is important: Ensuring grasslands, which cover 40% of the UK, provide a suite of ecosystem goods and services and store natural capital… Read More »Net zero, land use and climate change: what are the ecosystem consequences?
