  • Burgess, Paul J.; Morris, Joe (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2009-12-31)
    This paper explores how agricultural technology has interacted with recent land use in the UK and how it might do so in the next 50 years. From 1960 to 1985, farmers successfully used technology to increase the output ...
  • Pantera, A.; Burgess, Paul J.; Mosquera Losada, R.; Moreno, G.; López-Díaz, M. L.; Corroyer, N.; McAdam, J.; Rosati, A.; Papadopoulos, A. M.; Graves, Anil; Rigueiro Rodríguez, A.; Ferreiro-Domínguez, N.; Fernández Lorenzo, J. L.; González-Hernández, M. P.; Papanastasis, V. P.; Mantzanas, K.; Van Lerberghe, P.; Malignier, N. (2018-01-06)
    Most farm-based agroforestry projects focus on the integration of trees on arable or livestock enterprises. This paper focuses on the integration of understorey crops and/or livestock within high value tree systems (e.g., ...
  • Burgess, Paul J. (The Royal Forestry Society, 2017-04-30)
    The Royal Forestry Society, the Woodland Trust and the Soil Association are hosting a one-day conference on ‘Agroforestry: Improving Productivity for Farmers and Foresters’ at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire on 22 June ...
  • Agbenyega, Olivia; Burgess, Paul J.; Cook, Matthew; Morris, Joe (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2009-07-01)
    Owners, local residents, government, and conservation organisations can express divergent preferences in the development and management of local woodlands. The perceptions of these four groups were examined, in the context ...
  • Agbenyega, Olivia (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Applied Sciences, 2007-02)
    The UK government provides financial incentives to land owners who promote community use of newly-planted woodlands. De Groot et al. (2002) have developed a framework for classifying ecosystem functions. This research ...
  • Burgess, Paul J.; Moffat, Andy J.; Matthews, Robin B. (Ip Publishing, 2011-01-27)
    Forests play an important role in regulating the global climate through storing carbon that would otherwise be released as CO 2 to the atmosphere, and affecting the global energy balance through absorption of solar ...
  • Upson, Matthew A. (Cranfield University, 2014-07)
    Planting trees on agricultural land either as farm woodlands or agroforestry (trees integrated with farming) is one option for reducing the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Trees store carbon as biomass, and may increase ...
  • Goglio, Pietro; Smith, W. N.; Grant, B. B.; Desjardins, R. L.; Gao, X.; Hanis, K.; Tenuta, M.; Campbell, C. A.; McConkey, B. G.; Nemecek, T.; Burgess, Paul J.; Williams, Adrian G. (Elsevier, 2017-03-23)
    Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide are two important greenhouse gases (GHG) released from cropping systems. Their emissions can vary substantially with climate, soil, and crop management. While different methods are available ...
  • Nixon, D. J.; Burgess, Paul J.; Sanga, B. N. K.; Carr, M. K. V. (Cambridge University Press, 2001-01-01)
    To assist commercial producers with optimising the use of irrigation water, the responses to drought of mature and young tea crops (22 and 5 years after field planting respectively) were compared using data from two ...
  • Burgess, Paul J.; Reinhard, Berend Richard; Pasturel, P. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2006-12-01)
    Field calibrations for a neutron probe and a capacitance sensor (Diviner 2000) for measuring the soil water content of a shrinking–swelling clay soil were substantially different from commonly used default values. Using ...

(Elsevier, 2017-03-20)
    An accurate and objective estimate on the extent of agroforestry in Europe is critical for the development of supporting policies. For this reason, a more harmonised and uniform Pan-European estimate is needed. The aim of ...
  • Bloodworth, Jack; Holman, Ian P.; Burgess, Paul J.; Gillman, Sarah; Frogbrook, Zoe; Brown, Peter (Elsevier, 2015-07-10)
    In recent years water companies have started to adopt catchment management to reduce diffuse pollution in drinking water supply areas. The heterogeneity of catchments and the range of pollutants that must be removed to ...
  • Graves, Anil R.; Burgess, Paul J.; Palma, João H. N.; Herzog, F.; Moreno, G.; Bertomeu, M.; Dupraz, Christian; Liagre, F.; Keesman, Karel; van der Werf, Wopke; Koeffeman, de Nooy A.; van den Briel, J. P. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2007-04-01)
    Silvoarable agroforestry could promote use of trees on farms in Europe, but its likely effect on production, farm profitability, and environmental services is poorly understood. Hence, from 2001 to 2005, the Silvoarable ...
  • Lawton, Nicola Jane (Cranfield UniversityCranfield Health, 2006-09)
    A demand exists for a fast, sensitive, reliable and economical test for pyogenic sepsis that provides a “real time” bed-side assessment. Detection of significant intra-abdominal sepsis can be particularly problematic in ...
  • Torralba, Mario; Fagerholm, Nora; Burgess, Paul J.; Moreno, G.; Plieninger, Tobias (Elsevier, 2016-08-16)
    Agroforestry has been proposed as a sustainable agricultural system over conventional agriculture and forestry, conserving biodiversity and enhancing ecosystem service provision while not compromising productivity. However, ...
  • Lovrić, Marko; Rois-Díaz, Mercedes; den Herder, Michael; Pisanelli, Andrea; Lovrić, Nataša; Burgess, Paul J. (Springer, 2018-02-01)
    The factors that determine the implementation of four alternative agroforestry practices or no agroforestry on a theoretical 200 ha farm in Mediterranean Europe were examined using an analytic network process (ANP) model. ...
  • Burgess, Paul J. (The Royal Scottish Forestry Society, 1999-01-01)

  • Panter, Jonathan Paul (Cranfield University, 2006-08)
    Water is a limiting factor in the distribution and growth of trees. Changing climatic conditions are likely to significantly effect tree species development. The planting and establishment of trees needs to take into ...
