Of pests, disease and climate change: Oak in the 21st century
Tuesday February 19 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Dr. Karsten Schonrogge (C.E.H.)
Trees and forests are and will be subject to sources of stress, such as climate change, pests and diseases which are forecast to increase in the future. I will summarise some of the current research aiming to mitigate such impacts with a focus on oak health research at CEH. Joint meeting with BBOWT.
Visitors welcome (£3 charge). Members are invited to bring exhibits and share their observations at all meetings.
