The major project outputs are expected to be:
The project will deliver:
(i) the findings of the literature review (for Defra),
(ii) the results from the field experimental manipulations and the resulting relationships between vegetation and hydrology and carbon stocks and fluxes,
(iii) a basic cost-benefit analysis of the feasibility of the investigated restoration management strategies (for Defra), and
(iii) a model prediction of the long-term effects of the different management strategies on vegetation dynamics and water and carbon fluxes.
