Stemming the tide of biodiversity loss in the marine environment
Human activities and manmade structures can negatively affect bird populations. Previously there was no robust method to quantify the impact. BU researchers have applied extensive behavioural research to develop unique computer modelling techniques. This has accurately predicted how human activities affect coastal birds in 35 sites in Europe and one in Australia.
Policy-making and species eradication: Protecting European biodiversity from the ecological impacts of non-native fish
BU research delivers the evidence base on which to develop regulations, policy and management programmes to protect European biodiversity from the adverse impacts of non-native fish.
BU’s pioneering analytical method of mapping ecosystem services and their associated values has led to significant impacts on environmental policy, planning and implementation at a global scale.
Modelling of the effects of development on nearby nature conservation sites has allowed planners and conservation bodies to devise and agree policies to minimise impacts on legally-protected rare bird species.
