A one day discussion meeting on the ecology, conservation and management of the New Forest.
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. The Forest can be thought of as an integrated system, in which both people and wildlife play a significant part. This system has 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.
A provisional programme can be seen here.
