Ecohydrology of floodplain meadows

Our researchers specialize in:

  • Soil water and nutrients influence on vegetation communities
  • Habitat restoration and management
  • Engagement with local communitites

We host the Floodplain Meadows Partnership and our long term monitoring research into floodplain meadows helps with conservation and restoration of these habitats. Our research includes looking at the impacts of flooding, water regime, climate change and nutrient cycling on floodplain meadows. We share our research with farmers and land managers as well as the conservation sector through our public engagement and undertake management trials on many sites across the UK. We are also expanding our work on UK floodplain meadows to similar habitats communities elsewhere in the world, including Siberian floodplains.
