Are there benefits from living in the Wiltshire Countryside?
You can contribute to the Wessex BESS project which is a landscape-scale research project investigating the relationships between biodiversity, and the benefits and well-being that people get from nature and the
countryside. As the name suggests, the project is based in Wiltshire on a study area in the Wessex landscape.
As part of this research programme, Cranfield University and the RSPB are leading the work package on ‘cultural ecosystem services’, that is, the non-material benefits (aesthetic, recreational, spiritual etc.) provided by nature and the countryside.
