Hay meadows, one of Europe’s most biodiverse habitat, was the subject of the PhD research of EHU researcher Elizabeth Sullivan. This work has recently featured on the blog of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland. Elizabeth studied hay meadow change over a quarter of a century in the Trough of Bowland and then examined how connected the meadows are within Bowland and in a corresponding area of Worcestershire.
The work was supported financially by EHU, Natural England, NHM and the BSBI. If you want to read Elizabeth’s first peer reviewed paper, you can find it here.
