Resilient Livestock Farming Systems: Multi-species grassland mixtures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase farming systems capacity to deal with potential climate change impacts

The overall objective of Re-Livestock is to evaluate and mobilize the adoption of innovative practices applied cross-scale (animal, herd, farm, sector and region) to reduce GHG emissions from livestock farming systems and increase their capacity to deal with potential climate change impacts.

Improving sustainable parasite control in British dairy cattle

The dairy industry is an essential part of UK food security. It faces an increased focus on sustainable farming practices which aim to reduce negative, and promote positive, environmental impacts whilst maintaining high levels of food production, food safety and animal welfare standards. Read more

Context-dependency of climate mitigation, biodiversity and ecosystem services in regenerative agriculture

Introduction. Driven by the need to limit global warming to below 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and halt biodiversity decline, numerous policies and incentives across the UK and worldwide are convincing land managers to adopt “green” or “carbon farming” practices. Read more

Metabolic interactions between fungi and bacteria in the rumen microbiome

Sustainable ruminant farming is required to ensure global food security while mitigating environmental impacts. Ruminant performance, including greenhouse-gas emission, is critically impacted by activity of the microbiome. Read more

Impacts of larger litter size on robustness and resilience of pigs

Pigs exhibit the most severe naturally occurring intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) among livestock species where there is impaired growth and development of the embryo/foetus or its organs during pregnancy. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - Environmental histories of grazing and the sustainability of montane ecosystems: a case study in Snowdonia, North Wales

Background. The project will investigate the environmental history of montane heath in the Carneddau mountains, North Wales. This fragile landscape is classified as being in an unfavourable condition, affected by over-grazing and climate change. Read more

Quantifying biodiversity benefits and disease disbenefits from woodland creation projects

Background. Woodland creation projects and ecological networks for nature (eg Natural England Nature Networks) are increasing in the UK under government policies to increase tree planting for climate change mitigation and to promote biodiversity by enabling species dispersal and movements. Read more

Integrating multi-taxa biodiversity conservation into upland ecosystem service land-use models. (DOLMAN_UENV23ARIES)

Supervisory Team - Robert Hawkes, RSPB . Scientific background . Conservation is still failing to reverse biodiversity declines, but land-use strategies must now be balanced with multiple other ecosystem services (ES) including food, carbon sequestration, and flood mitigation. Read more
