Project: Disease distribution in the hydroscape 

Promoting connectivity within and across landscapes has been a focal goal of nature conservation. However, in human-modified landscapes, there may be a “tipping point” where high connectivity between habitats becomes a negative influence on ecosystems.

Aim: determine how various levels of connectivity influence the distribution and abundance of faecal indicator organisms (FIOs), within and across freshwater catchments which experience different environmental and anthropogenic pressures.

Funding: NERC Hydroscape (Workpackage 1)
