BC3 Journal Article “PESFOR-W: Improving the design and environmental effectiveness of woodlands for water Payments for Ecosystem Services”

The EU Water Framework Directive aims to ensure restoration of Europe’s water bodies to “good ecological status” by 2027. Many Member States will struggle to meet this target, with around half of EU river catchments currently reporting below standard water quality. Diffuse pollution from agriculture represents a major pressure, affecting over 90% of river basins.

BC3 Journal Article “Effects of thinning and pruning on stem and crown characteristics of radiata pine (Pinus radiata D. Don)”

All silvicultural practices produce effects on wood properties and thereafter on market value. For instance practices such as initial planting, growing space, thinning and/ or timing and intensity of pruning may have a great influence on the extent of branching and therefore on the final product.

BC3 Journal Article “Future impacts of drivers of change on wetland ecosystem services in Colombia”

Wetlands are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world due to their delivery of ecosystem services (ES), but they are particularly vulnerable to drivers of land-use change. However, little is known about how different wetlands respond to drivers of land-use change and how that impacts their delivery of ES.

BC3 Journal Article “Fisheries regulatory regimes and resilience to climate change”

Climate change is already producing ecological, social, and economic impacts on fisheries, and these effects are expected to increase in frequency and magnitude in the future. Fisheries governance and regulations can alter socio-ecological resilience to climate change impacts via harvest control rules and incentives driving fisher behavior, yet there are no syntheses or conceptual frameworks for examining how institutions and their regulatory approaches can alter fisheries resilience to climate change.

BC3 Journal Article “Delineating boundaries of social-ecological systems for landscape planning: A comprehensive spatial approach”

An increasing number of studies demonstrate the need of applying a social-ecological system approach for landscape planning. However, there is a lack of empirical research that operationalizes the concept of social-ecological system for landscape planning through the characterization of social-ecological interactions. In this study, we develop a methodological framework to delineate the boundaries of social-ecological systems and to characterize their main social-ecological units in a spatially explicit way.

BC3 Journal Article “Dancing With Storks: The Role of Power Relations in Payments for Ecosystem Services”

The institutional change induced by payments for ecosystem services (PES) schemes is a ‘messy’ process. The uptake and outcomes of PES schemes cannot be fully explained from a rational choice perspective. The notion of ‘institutional bricolage’ is needed to analyse how actors assemble or reshape their actions by combining new institutions such as a PES scheme within other locally embedded institutions.
