Scott J. Davidson, PhD
I am a Lecturer in Ecosystem Resilience at the University of Plymouth, UK.
My research investigates the resilience of wetland ecosystems to both climate change and disturbance regimes, as well as the roles these ecosystems can play as natural climate solutions.
I like to use a multi-scale approach, combining both field research and laboratory analysis with remote sensing and modelling approaches to better constrain spatio-temporal dynamics of wetland ecosystems.
With my work, I aim to contribute to a better understanding of the complex feedbacks between ecosystem resilience and disturbance regimes under a rapidly changing climate.
Broadly, I am interested in identifying the key biotic and abiotic drivers of greenhouse gases, ecosystem processes and vegetation community change across northern latitude landscapes.
I am also co-founder of PEAT – Peatland ECR Action Team.
