ECRC staff at Stirling meeting

Assessing stresses on freshwater habitats

Members of the Environmental Change Research Centre attended the NERC Hydroscape meeting at the University of Stirling on 3rd-4th May, where UCL Geography scientists joined others from the Hydroscape consortium to share preliminary results and research plans for the next year.

Hydroscape is a four-year multidisciplinary research programme, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), begun in December 2015,

It aims to determine how stressors, such as nutrient pollution and climate change, interact with connectivity between freshwater habitats to influence freshwater biodiversity and ecosystem function in Britain.

Most of the meeting was dedicated to presentations by early career researchers on progress towards the four objectives of the programme.

UCL Geography postdoctoral scientists Ambroise Baker and Simon Turner presented their latest results, on landscape scale biodiversity in aquatic habitats and legacy metal pollutant links to food chains.
