Lyndsey was awarded a 4 year PhD studentship funded through the Natural Heritage Research Partnership (NHRP) during 2008. She is examining the sustainability of grazing on sand dune systems throughout Northern Ireland focusing on the direct and indirect effects of domestic livestock on plant communities, sand erosion, dune stability and nutrient flow. She will also assess the range and distribution of invasive alien species on dunes and evaluate the efficacy of agri-environment schemes in control grazing pressure. She is supervised by Prof. Christine Maggs and Dr. Jim McAdam (AFBI).
