RD 1.3.4 Biodiversity management

Carrying out stakeholder consultations

Researchers from the James Hutton Institute, Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh are working together to address key knowledge gaps in the development and implementation of biodiversity management measures, both in relation to 'on the ground' management practices and governance systems to promote such practices. Our work includes:

  • Reviewing practical experiences on biodiversity management approaches
  • Assessing new management options for agri-environment schemes
  • Analysing the potential effects of habitat and land use change in relation to the types of biodiversity and ecosystem services delivered
  • Quantify the accumulation of biodiversity in woodland habitat over time, and so investigate the temporal dimension of community diversity
