Dr Sandra Angers-Blondin

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

I am an ecologist with an interest in global change, and my postgraduate studies have focused on understanding vegetation responses to warming in the Arctic. My current project at LJMU seeks to develop a tool to map ecosystem services at the farm- to catchment scale in Cheshire, as part of an Environmental Land Management test and trial.
