Richard is a Research Assistant in vegetation ecology. He has worked in a wide variety of habitats including mountains, moorlands, woodlands, wetlands, grasslands and coastal plant communities throughout Scotland.

Current research interests

He has a particular interest in the ecology of lower plant groups such as bryophytes and lichens. Recently he has been involved with re-visiting a large dataset of vegetation records from the 1960's and 70's investigating the effects of long term changes in relation to land management and climate change. Consultancy work has mainly involved vegetation monitoring of The Scottish Environmentally Sensitive Areas Scheme and herbivore impact assessments for Scottish Natural Heritage, The Deer Commission for Scotland and private landholders.

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.
