NERC is inviting proposals to contribute to addressing the goals of the Valuing Nature programme through a broader understanding of the tipping points of ecosystem services.
This NERC supported call is for UK focused research proposals to further understand:
- the links between ecosystem stocks, ecosystem service flows and benefits that are delivered as a result, to enable identification of critical levels of ecosystem stocks that avoid abrupt and damaging change in the delivery of benefits (tipping points); and
- how the values (including those broader than economics) of ecosystem services and the benefits they deliver change as tipping points are reached and exceeded.
A funding pot of up to £1·1m (80%FEC) is available from NERC, which is expected to support three proposals of up to 30 months duration, and up to £370K (80% FEC).
Applicants should refer to the full Announcement of Opportunity for further details.
Call closes: 16:00 BST 6 May 2016
