DescriptionThe Forest Ecosystem Research Group (FERG) is part of the Department of Environmental Resource Management in the Agriculture Faculty, University Colllege Dublin. The Web site provides details about present and past projects undertaken by FERG, staff contact information and details of their publications. Research areas include ecosystem processes in forest and peatland ecosystems, particularly monitoring the "chemistry of water from where it enters the forest as rain, to where it leaves as percolating groundwater or streamwater". Additional areas of work include establishing an ecological monitoring network for Ireland, management impacts in ecosystems, such as the influence of forestry on freshwater ecosystems, the effects of deforestation on soil development, and the influence of forest harvesting on water quality.
