Today we take two of the MSc classes to Oxford University's long-term ecological research at Wytham Woods
This is the lecture I give on the carbon cycle research.
And this is a lecture by Dr Mike Morecroft on the conservation and climate change context of Wytham Woods.
Wytham Woods: a carbon cycle perspective (14 MB)
Climate change: impacts, adaptation and mitigation in British woodlands (2.7 MB)
It was a gorgeous day in the woods - soft autumn sunshine filtering through the red-yellow canopy, the forest floor a carpet of soft yellow. Lots of discussions about conservation, carbon flows, climate change, badger culling, invasive species and elephant rewilding! A great break from hothouse classrooms...
