Forest Ecology and Conservation group

Changing the landscape of conservation

About our work

Human population growth and resource consumption are placing enormous pressures on natural ecosystems. My group is interested in how and why the world’s forests are changing and using our research to inform conservation policy.

Our research fits into four broad themes:

  • Laser scanning forest carbon
  • Forest Biodiversity
  • How forest are responding to global change
  • What types of interventions work in conservation?
