Abstract

This project developed a Bayesian Belief Network for English uplands, representing key system components and relationships on the basis of the best available evidence. Given the policy relevance of managed and wild fire, a rapid evidence synthesis was conducted to assess factors influencing the behaviour of peatland users and managers in relation to wildfire, which informed a wildfire sub-model. By considering four scenarios, it was possible to consider how changes in the availability of public funding and/or carbon finance might alter the overall utility of uplands and provision of ecosystem services. users and managers in relation to wildfire, which informed a wildfire sub- model. By considering four scenarios (below), it was possible to consider how changes in the availability of public funding and/or carbon finance might alter the overall utility of uplands and provision of specific ecosystem services. users and managers in relation to wildfire, which informed a wildfire sub- model.
