This report draws together forty-one studies concerned in different ways with the dynamics of change in the uplands. It is based partly on a conference held at Hatfield College, University of Durham, in spring 1999. However, we have updated papers, and also drawn on a workshop held in Edinburgh on 26 April 2002. This workshop, held by Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and JNCC explored linkages between land-use policy, research and advice in the uplands; and provided an opportunity to bring parts of the report markedly up-to-date. All of the papers reflect some of the more recent changes befalling the uplands.
The report draws on the experience and knowledge of some who have worked in the uplands for many decades, and others who are just beginning to tackle research, conservation or management issues, and seeks to integrate different approaches. Several of the studies transcend geomorphological, ecological, landscape, planning and policy perspectives.
The report is divided into five sections:
- Facets of the uplands: perceptions and research;
- Importance, sensitivity and land-use issues;
- Policy issues: integrated approaches to conservation, management and use;
- Modelling, processes and monitoring change in the uplands; and
- Land management issues.
