Project title: Poverty and ecology: developing a new evolutionary approach

1. Tell us a bit about you and your project team:

I am now working as a postdoc research fellow in School of Geography. We have a very diverse and multidisciplinary research team from 5 different institutions from China and UK, including Southampton University, Dundee University, Durham University, East China Normal University and Nanjing Institute of Geography & Limnology, Chinese Academic of Science.

2. Tell us a bit about your project:

Our project aims to develop a novel evolutionary framework for the study of ecosystem services and their pathways to delivery by extending the timescales and ranges of ecosystem services through regional integration of palaeoenvironmental and multi-decadal social-economic records.

3. Describe the impact of your project in terms of providing solutions to global development challenges:

Our research will expand the capacity to address fundamental questions about complex social-ecological systems while evaluating assumptions of policies and practices intended to advance human well-being.
