LEC PhD student, Beth Brockett, organises knowledge-exchange event for farmers

Beth Brockett who is researching 'An interdisciplinary approach to modelling ecosystem service delivery at the farm unit scale' for her PhD has organised an knowledge-exchange event.

The event is in association with the Cumbrian Farmers' Network and is aimed at farmers and farm advisors to help them understand the science behind future agri-environment schemes. Beth obtained the funding from the British Ecological Society and the Ecosystems Knowledge Network.

The event is sponsored by the British Ecological Society and the Ecosystems Knowledge Network. It is supported by the Cumbrian Farmer Network, Lancaster University and Manchester University.

The Lancaster University staff and students involved are: Prof John Quinton, Dr Alan Blackburn, Dr Nigel Watson, Dr Sue Ward and Catherine Baxendale (PhD student). Three undergraduate volunteers are also involved in helping with the event, Gareth Netto, Alex Patrickson and Freyja Scarborough.
