Management of Biodiversity Change

Management of Biodiversity Change requires a robust, predictive understanding of actual and potential impacts of the main drivers of change, to inform the development of management options to conserve and enhance our natural

We investigate these issues from an integrated perspective, combining ecological, biophysical and socio-economic research within 4 inter-linked modules (see right-hand panel), providing information of direct relevance to the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy.

The research theme is being tackled by teams of ecological, environmental, social & economic scientists from Macaulay Institute, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Scottish Agricultural College, & Scottish Crop Research Institute.
