‘Beads on Weeds’

Ewan Shilland a winner in UCL “Research Images as Art/Art Images as Research” competition

‘Beads on Weeds’

Ewan Shilland, of UCL Geography’s Environmental Change Research Centre/ENSIS Ltd, is a prize-winner in this year’s UCL Research Images as Art / Art Images as Research competition.

His winning image is of Potamogeton polygonifolius (Bog Pondweed) growing in a runnel, taken during a survey in the New Forest.

This is one of a number of aquatic plant surveys undertaken by ENSIS, providing data for various clients this year, including the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, DEFRA and the Department of the Environment Northern Ireland. The work also supports the Water Framework Directive and status updates for such designated site as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) and European Special Areas of Conservation (SACs).

During 2015 ENSIS completed surveys at 103 lake and stream sites across the UK, including one of the highest lakes in Wales (Ffynnon Lloer, 650 m above sea level), Wastwater (the deepest lake in England) and another which had to be accessed by abseiling in, SAS style!
