Stirling University embarks on new Bamff based research

  • Post author:

Patrick Cook and Alan Law of Stirling University have begun new long term studies on Bamff Wildland that explore how rewilding here impacts biodiversity.

Patrick’s work focusses on invertebrates in areas where conservation grazing is occurring (through the presence of cattle, pigs and eventually ponies). Various insect traps have been installed and a series of moth trappings already revealed over 50 species in the wildland fields.

Meanwhile, Alan Law is exploring the range of various species of flora and fauna between ponds with and without beavers.
