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.

A comparison of ecosystem services delivered by 11 long-term monitoring sites in the UK environmental change network

This paper describes ECN's first assessment of ecosystem services delivered by 11 of the terrestrial sites in the network. It is based on the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. The study demonstrates the challenges and limitations involved in attempting holistic assessments of ecosystem services at the site and inter-site level and highlights the importance of both local expert knowledge and consistent scientific measurement in contributing to the process.
