This module examines the environmental, economic and social viability of various upland farming systems in the UK. Upland environments and land-use are examined in the context of the production and marketing of food from the uplands. The impact on biodiversity and ecosystem service provision, e.g. regulated flooding, water quality, greenhouse gas emissions, is reviewed, as are drivers of future change.
