MSc student placements

Thomas Wood, University of Sussex
“I completed my Master’s thesis with the GWCT, looking at how experimental agri-environment schemes provided foraging resources for game birds and farmland bees. The project offered a great opportunity for hands-on fieldwork in a real world system with sampling and observation of invertebrates both in the vegetation and visiting the flowers. The research process was very rewarding as it felt like the reasons for the research were clear and it was part of a broader body of work producing useful results for scientists and land managers. The whole experience increased my desire to work in this area, as I am now finishing a PhD in partnership with GWCT that looks at how existing agri-environment schemes benefit farmland bee populations.”
