Scott J. Davidson, PhD
* I will be starting a Lectureship in Ecosystem Resilience at the University of Plymouth, UK this summer *
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.
