Article
In 2010, the UK government launched the Demonstration Test Catchments (DTC) platform to evaluate the extent to which on-farm mitigation measures can cost-effectively reduce the impacts of agricultural water pollution on river ecology whilst maintaining food production capacity. In this paper, we compare the impacts on soil health of two types of co...
Article
Full-text available
Whilst analgesics and medications have demonstrated efficacy for people with osteoarthritis, their effectiveness is dependent on adherence. This has previously been reported as particularly low in this population. The purpose of this meta-ethnography was to explore possible perceptions for this. A systematic review of published and unpublished lite...
Article
To fully assess the sustainability of energy from home-grown biomass, the whole production combustion life cycle of the crops needs to be considered across a broad range of ecosystem service indicators. A sustainability framework needs to consider impacts within the UK and beyond arising across the life cycle. This paper presents a framework for ma...
Chapter
Energy, and access to energy, are essential to human life, civilisation and development. A number of energy issues - including energy security, energy prices and the polluting emissions for energy use - now have high prominence on global agendas of policy and diplomacy. In addressing these and other global energy issues, the purpose of this book is...
Conference Paper
This paper describes a study on the Salle Farms estate in Norfolk to assess the effectiveness of a cover crop (oilseed radish) and reduced tillage methods as mitigation measures for controlling diffuse pollution from agriculture. Results from porous pot sampling of nitrate in soil water indicate a substantial contrast between the fields with and wi...
Conference Paper
This working paper is an output of the UKERC Energy Strategy under Uncertainty flagship project which aims:  To generate, synthesise and communicate evidence about the range and nature of the risks and uncertainties facing UK energy policy and the achievement of its goals relating to climate change, energy security and affordability.  To identify...
Article
Full-text available
This paper defines the potentially available land for perennial energy crops across Great Britain as the first component of a broader appraisal undertaken by the ‘Spatial Modelling of Bioenergy in Great Britain to 2050’ project. Combining data on seven primary constraints in a GIS reduced the available area to just over 9 M ha (40% of GB). Adding o...
Article
Full-text available
Public attitudes were assessed towards two dedicated biomass crops – Miscanthus and Short Rotation Coppice (SRC), particularly regarding their visual impacts in the landscape. Results are based on responses to photographic and computer-generated images as the crops are still relatively scarce in the landscape. A questionnaire survey indicated littl...

Learning how to deal with values, frames and governance in Sustainability Appraisal, Regional Studies. The effectiveness of Sustainability Appraisal is highly contested because of the value-based nature of the assumed goal (sus- tainable development), because effectiveness itself can be determined through different theoretical framings, and because...
Article
1. Concern about climate change and energy security is stimulating land-use change, which in turn precipitates social, economic and environmental responses. It is predicted that within 20 years in the UK, bioenergy crops could occupy significant areas of rural land. Among these, dedicated biomass crops, such as Miscanthus (Miscanthus spp.) grass an...
Article
Full-text available
Policy interest in perennial energy crops such as Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) willow and Miscanthus is firmly established in Europe, and the UK government has strongly supported the use of biomass crops as a source of electricity, heat and even transport fuel. The UK Biomass Strategy envisages a major expansion in both the supply and use of biomas...
Article
The Water4All project funded, by the EU InterregIIIB programme aimed to demonstrate groundwater protection in the context of spatial planning and the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. Through a series of workshops, the four partner countries (Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK) developed a handbook containing an approach...
Article
The future evolution of our agricultural landscapes and countryside is the subject of considerable debate and policy discussion, alongside which is an increasing emphasis on the inclusion of public consultation and participation within planning and decision making systems. However, communicating different proposed policy options in a manner that fa...
Article
Climate change is an issue that will increasingly require policy consideration, but for which knowledge and information at the local or landscape scale is either lacking or largely inaccessible. This paper explores the possibility of reinterpreting climate impacts information and presenting it through GIS-based visualisations in a manner that might...
Article
Full-text available
The use of computer-based visualisations to depict landscape futures is increasingly common in environmental decision-making, particularly where information must be communicated to a wide and non-expert audience. Continuing technological development makes it possible to use real-world data as a base for such visualisations, with modifications made...
Article
A climate change trend analysis (CCTA) was carried out on selected plant species from 66 nature reserves. The CCTA indicates trend in probability of presence under various climate change scenarios. The results demonstrate the potential of the approach to identify locations that might become less suitable for particular species as the climate warms,...
Article
Abstract Climate-space models were constructed for 241 plant species from a sample of 86 nature reserve communities in Great Britain. Convex Hull climate envelopes were used to compile Mutual Climatic Range diagrams for selected species at each site. Present-day and potential future climatic values over the next 100 years were compared against the...
Article
As public participation in environmental decision-making becomes more prevalent, there is a growing need to communicate effectively with a non-expert audience. Visual presentation has been identified as an effective means of communicating landscape-related information, particularly due to the increasing ease with which computer visualisation techni...
Chapter
Wetland ecosystems account for about six percent of the global land area and are among the most threatened of all environmental resources. The wetlands found in temperate climate zones in developed economies have long suffered significant losses and continue to face an on-going conversion threat from industrial, agricultural and residential develop...

To provide evidence to test the hypothesis that it is possible to cost effectively reduce the impact of agricultural diffuse water pollution on ecological function while maintaining food security through the implementation of multiple on-farm measures across whole river catchments using local expertise to solve local problems.
