Publication Release from sheep‐grazing appears to put some heart back into upland vegetation: A comparison of nutritional properties of plant species in long‐term grazing experiments
This study at ECN Moor House in the English Pennine hills compares the nutritional properties of plant species in sheep-grazed and ungrazed upland plots. The study is based on long-term grazing exclosures at Moor House that are now coordinated by ECN and supported by the Ecological Continuity Trust (ECT). The authors contributed the front cover image for this issue of Annals of Applied Biology.

Publication Can digital image classification be used as a standardised method for surveying peatland vegetation cover?
This paper, published in a Special Issue of the journal Ecological Indicators to mark 20 years of data collection at ECN terrestrial sites, describes the use of digital image classification techniques as an approach to surveying peatland vegetation to functional type level.

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.
