The DURESS project – Diversity of Upland Rivers for Ecosystem Service Sustainability – is part of a major Research Council initiative to assess the role of biodiversity in delivering the key ecosystem services on which we rely.

This £3 million project, led by Cardiff University, launched in May 2012. It brings together a consortium of 28 researchers from a range of disciplines and institutions, and is actively supported by seven key stakeholders who represent the water industry, the leisure industry, policy makers, land owners and land managers.
