Research overview

I am using an interdisciplinary tool box to explore new ways of thinking about, planning for and enacting the farm environment or agri-environment on extensive livestock farms in the English Lake District. Applying mixed methods mapping using Geographical Information Systems is an exciting way of integrating physical and social, quantitative and qualitative forms of information. It enables me to consider how different forms of information are included and prioritised.  I combine field measurements of soil carbon and nitrogen, fodder production and vegetation survey data with ethnographic data in a way which accepts the complexity of the agri-environment assemblage.
