Debbie is a community ecologist with experience of working in a range of habitats including upland and lowland grasslands, moorland and arable landscapes.  She is interested in how land management choices, particularly in the uplands influence biodiversity and other ecosystem services.  Recent work has involved studying the interactions between heather burning and grazing by deer and sheep and the subsequent recovery of vegetation after burning.
