Multiland Project

Sheep in silvopastoral agroforestry

The Multiland project provided research on positive interactions between trees, livestock and soil to improve our understanding of animal behaviour and metabolism (feeding, growth, defecation and use of shelter).  The project included research on increasing productivity and decreasing GHG emissions by exploiting potential synergies between trees and livestock.  This included evaluation of the role of shelterbelt systems in the provision of ecosystem services and in increasing ecosystem resilience to perturbations of upland livestock systems.
