Publication Ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) population declines and phenological changes: Is there a connection?
* INCLUDES 'WHY IT MATTERS' FEATURE * The authors used ECN data for two sites in Scotland to reveal correlations between declining ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) populations and phenological changes (the timing of natural events).

Publication Vegetation exerts a greater control on litter decomposition than climate warming in peatlands
To compare the effects of climate warming and vegetation change on decomposition and carbon accumulation, the team led by Sue Ward (Lancaster University) conducted an experiment on peatland at the Moor House-Upper Teesdale ECN site in the North Pennines. ECN meteorological data were used.

Publication Factors influencing the release of dissolved organic carbon and dissolved forms of nitrogen from a small upland headwater during autumn runoff events
This paper asesses the relative importance of the principal factors influencing the release of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and dissolved forms of nitrogen (N) from a small upland headwater (the Birnie Burn at Glensaugh) during a sequence of autumn runoff events.

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.
