KEY STEPS IN DE-CARBONISING – PROF MATTHEW WILLIAMS from University of Edinburgh + AGM – 7.00pm

KEY STEPS IN DE-CARBONISING – PROF MATTHEW WILLIAMS from University of Edinburgh + AGM – 7.00pm

Professor Mathew Williams is the Professor of Global Change Ecology at the University of Edinburgh.  His research is in quantifying and understanding the terrestrial carbon cycle and its links to global change. This involves studying the interactions of plant and soil processes across environmental and biodiversity gradients from the tropics to the Arctic.  His current focus is on issues relating to the drought sensitivity of forests, the role of disturbance (fires or human activity) on forest biomass, and the sensitivity of Arctic ecosystems to warming.

Following the Stretton Climate Care AGM, Professor Williams will talk on  ‘Key Steps in De-Carbonising’, or what we have to do to get from our current position to the low carbon society we need to achieve within the next two decades. Admission is free to members; a small charge will be requested from visitors. Refreshments will be available.
