RESAS 22-27: SRUC-d4-1 Seeking Multiple Benefits From Natural Carbon Stores In The Uplands

Project Details


This project will explore the relationship between carbon storage, biodiversity conservation and flood mitigation in upland habitats to detect synergies and trade-offs and identify land management practices that optimise the benefits to be gained. It will therefore generate evidence to inform land-use management practices in the Scottish uplands that contribute to tackling the twin challenges of biodiversity loss and the climate emergency.
