A strategy for grassland to safeguard forage production against extreme weather events through resilience to multiple stresses

Cluster Leader: Prof. Davey Jones, Bangor University

  • Improves our fundamental understanding of how plant-soil interactions in grasslands respond to a combination of environmental stressors (extreme weather events) and how these will affect farm productivity and the delivery of ecosystem services.
  • Aims to determine the ‘tipping points’ at which environmental stressors cause irreversible negative changes in grassland ecosystem functioning.
  • Will provide the agricultural industry, policymakers and associated stakeholders with new management tools for future-proofing Welsh agriculture against extremes and uncertainties in weather.

Opportunities for Sêr Cymru Fellowships and PhD studentships:

  • There are no current opportunities.
