ClimateChange@Hutton - the Environment

Scotland’s environment has developed over thousands of years, shaped by human and natural processes into a complex and interconnected set of systems. Climate change is fundamentally altering some of these systems, and the effects are beginning to be felt throughout every aspect of the environment. Our rich and varied ecosystems are changing dramatically and will continue to do so, and it is vital that we understand the trajectory of these changes.

The James Hutton Institute has many researchers studying different aspects of Scotland’s environment and how it is changing over time. From ecological studies monitoring changes to the populations of different species, to remote sensing surveys of the entire country’s changing landscape, we are monitoring how climate change’s complex and inter-related impacts are being felt across the country.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
