Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are the impact of herbivores on upland vegetation and the interaction between land management systems and upland landscapes.

My current work includes:
A study of land management where adjacent properties have divergent deer management objectives – how do estates collaborate to resolve conflicts?

My previous work includes:

The impacts of reduced sheep grazing on upland biodiversity - Sheep numbers in the uplands have declined rapidly, as a result of CAP reform and sheep economics. The work involved participatory research with stakeholders and biodiversity experts, to select appropriate indicator variables which were measured at numerous paired study sites
Involvement with a pilot woodland grazing trial funded by Forestry Commission Scotland and contribution to the Woodland Grazing Toolbox
Initiation of a project funded by SNH to provide guidance for sites where habitats have conflicting grazing requirements: Developing guidance for managing extensive upland grazing where habitats have differing requirements.
