Event details

The world's tropical forests harbour half of the species on earth and still occupy a large proportion of our planet's surface. How does the biodiversity in these forests change with our changing climate? How does the ecology of the forests affect the carbon cycle? Explore why it is important to understand the dynamics of tropical forests for the wellbeing of our planet.

Professor Oliver Phillips is a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award holder in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds.
