Ecosystems and Environment Research Centre
The Ecosystems and Environment Research Centre (EERC) is focused on advancing understanding of key environmental challenges of major economic and societal importance in the 21st century. Our members study the living and non-living components of the ecosystem and the management and governance of these systems and work globally in habitats ranging from the tropical rainforests to the urban core of the UK’s major cities.
Our cutting edge research is key to having an impact on the environment and improving the lives of animals and humans worldwide. Through research including: work in the Amazonia on primates and how to address the threats that arises from human activity, this work is identifying new species for the first time. The Salford Advanced Laser Canopy Analyser developed in EERC produces the most accurate 3D measurements of forest biomass to date, and we have a leading team of researchers who are studying wildlife in the Chernobyl Exclusion zone in Ukraine.
