JNCC’s Chief Scientist, Prof. Christine Maggs, said: “We’re thrilled with the success of the proposals and look forward to collaborating with the universities. Through the development of the PhD projects we will be able to support the students to gain real experience in nature conservation.
“The Aberdeen QUADRAT partnership is particularly closely linked to JNCC – we have a team of scientists based at our Aberdeen office – but all of the partnerships will be significant for us.”
