Research Project

Landscape effects on the genetic structure and demography of riparian woodlands

Rivers and their riparian habitats are among the most diverse, dynamic and complex of terrestrial ecosystems. These landscape features can act as linking corridors across large and diverse landscapes, increasing connectivity and enhancing the movement of plant pollen and seeds. By studying one species, Alnus glutinosa, a key riparian tree species, across a river catchment, my research investigates the influence of landscape features on the regeneration and genetic structure of A. glutinosa woodlands within the River Tay catchment (Scotland).
