Research Projects

The practice has research capabilities, and has carried out a range of pure and applied research projects both for clients and as ‘in-house’ projects.

In 1997-1999 DCE Ltd carried out a project on behalf of the Countryside Council for Wales to study the ecology and life-history of the hornet robberfly (Asilus crabroniformis) a scarce and declining insect which is listed as a ‘Priority Species’ of the UK Biodiversity Action Plan, and we continue to maintain a special interest in the history, ecology and management of hedgerows, having developed a novel method of hedge evaluation in the 1990s and going on to contribute to the long-term archaeological and historical studies by the Universities of Bristol and Durham in the Shapwick parish of Somerset.

Current projects include the specialised taxonomy of certain fly families and the creation of a world taxonomic database for ‘thick-headed flies’ of the family Conopidae.
