Publication Modelling impacts of atmospheric deposition and temperature on long-term DOC trends
ECN and the Forest Level II monitoring network are the UK’s only source of information on long-term change in soil water chemistry. In this study, soil solution chemistry data from three upland ECN sites and three UK ICP Forest Level II sites were modelled using the dynamic soil chemistry model, MADOC, which simulates long-term changes in carbon and nitrogen cycling and soil acidity. Results suggest that future dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations may exceed preindustrial levels due to nitrogen pollution, which has implications for drinking water catchment management.

Publication Winners and losers in a long-term study of vegetation change at Moor House NNR: Effects of sheep-grazing and its removal on British upland vegetation
This paper, published in a Special Issue of the journal Ecological Indicators to mark 20 years of data collection at ECN terrestrial sites, investigates the effects of sheep grazing on vegetation through the use of a long-term sheep exclosure study.

Publication Estimating habitat extent and carbon loss from an eroded northern blanket bog using UAV derived imagery and topography
In this study, researchers used aerial imagery collected by flying a UAV over the ECN Moor House site, an upland blanket bog. From this spatial data, a digital surface model was constructed and vegetation and peatland features were classified, enabling carbon loss to be estimated. The paper shows what can be achieved with low-cost UAVs equipped with consumer grade camera equipment, and demonstrates their potential for the carbon and peatland conservation research community.

Publication Dung fungi as an indicator of large herbivore dynamics in peatlands
This paper describes a study in which coprophilious fungal spores (CFS) were analysed in three peatland grazing experiments, two of which are located at ECN terrestrial sites (Glensaugh and Moor House). Coprophilous fungal spores (CFS) have gained prominence in paleoecology as a proxy for large herbivore dynamics. The study was supported by the Ecological Continuity Trust.
