Valuing the impacts of ecosystem service interactions for policy effectiveness

This page is no longer updated. The information presented here formed part of our previous areas of research. This has included research carried out on behalf of our research partners, commerical contracts and also the Scottish Goverment's Strategic research programme during the period 2011 - 2016.

This project was conducted as part of the Valuing Nature Network funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). It brought together a team of soil scientists, ecologists, modellers and economists. The aim was to develop an understanding of how ecosystem processes and services interact to produce benefits to people, in an agricultural system.

The project team studied this at two scales:

  • at a catchment scale using data from Loweswater in the Lake District
  • at a landscape scale.

To find out more see the Valuing the impacts of ecosystem service interactions for policy effectiveness project page on the Valuing Nature Network website. The project was led by Alistair McVittie, Scotland's Rural College (SRUC).
