Fifth Annual Meeting

BIFoR FACE facility, Mill Haft, Norbury Road, STAFFS, ST20 0FJ
This one-day meeting provides a forum for those interested in the field of forest ecology to discuss current research and policy specifically related to forest insects, including their management (e.g. pest species) and conservation. The target audience is academics, students, practitioners and stakeholders. This meeting will feature a keynote presentation (TBC) followed by 8-10 conference style talks on research, policy, management or public engagement. It will also feature a visit to the University of Birmingham’s BIFoR FACE facility – This state-of-the-art facility provides the opportunity to experimentally test the impact of future elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration on forest ecosystems. This is achieved through the fumigation of a mature, unmanaged, temperate woodland with CO2 - https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/bifor/face/index.aspx
