Ecology and management of the New Forest in an era of climate change

Who is this for?

This one day conference is on Tuesday 25th October from 9.30am to 5.15pm at the Lyndhurst Community Centre, Lyndhurst, Hampshire, SO43 7NY.

The New Forest is widely recognised to be of international importance for wildlife. At the same time, the ecosystems of the New Forest provide many benefits to people, including recreation, rearing of livestock, timber production and clean water. These systems have always been dynamic, and in many ways it has been resilient to environmental change.But how is the Forest changing at the moment? And how might it change in future, given current concerns about climate change?

This conference will explore these issues, by presenting the results of recent research into the ecology and dynamics of the New Forest, focusing both on wildlife and the benefits provided by ecosystems to people, and the impacts of climate change. The afternoon session will include a discussion panel that will reflect on the papers presented, in which attendees are encouraged to participate.

It sounds like a great day. For more details, including how to book please go to :
