Melanie Jane Edgar – personal profile

My interest is in utilising research techniques to develop applicable land management strategies for farmers at the individual farm-scale to improve animal welfare and offset environmental impacts whilst maintaining economic viability within the agricultural industry. I am currently reading for a PhD Environmental Biology at the University of Manchester, funded as a BBSRC CASE student working with Natural England and the National Trust. My project aims to explore how grazing influences soil carbon and nitrogen storage, and greenhouse gas emissions in upland grasslands. The ultimate goal is to provide a mechanistic understanding of the effects of grazing that can be used to formulate land management strategies for climate mitigation in the uplands.
