A. Impacts of environmental change and land management on biodiversity

Focus on quantifying the impacts of land use change on biodiversity, from field scale through to landscapes and national scales, and our research also includes impacts of climate change and other environmental drivers.

Status and Trends of European Pollinators (STEP)

STEP has documented the status and trends of wild and managed pollinators, characterised the drivers of declines, assessed the impacts of pollinator loss on food production, biodiversity and wider society; and evaluated the effectiveness of mitigation options.

Linking agriculture and land use change to pollinator populations (AgriLand)

AgriLand has assessed links between wild pollinator population shifts and land use change, floral resources, managed honeybee densities and pesticide pressures.

Phosphorus cycling in the soil-microbe-plant continuum of agri-ecosystems

This project will deliver novel insights into structure function relationships of the rhizosphere microbial communities and their role in phosphorus cycling for a non-mycorrhizal crop plant.
