Modelling Future Fire Regimes and their Impact on the Environment - T126

Friday 9th January 2015

16:00 - 17:00

Location : Henley, G10

Speakers

  1. Prof Sandy Harrison - Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences, University of Reading

Large fires are a significant threat to life and human activities. The costs of fire damage and firefighting are escalating. Fire also plays an important role in maintaining terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity, affects atmospheric composition, and influences climate. Information about potential future changes in fire regimes is needed for planning purposes and management of climate-change adaptation/mitigation actions. Here I showcase modelling tools used for fire prediction, and what will happen to European fire regimes in the next 50-100 years.

Plant Science for Food Security - T128

Speakers

  1. Dr John Hammond - School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, University of Reading

Food production on land must increase to meet the dietary needs of the world�s growing population. Research in plant science underpins the efforts to increase crop production and ranges from field to molecular biology, encompassing some of the latest advances in science. It is therefore more important than ever to emphasise the importance of plants to the next generation, and spark an interest in this subject and the opportunities this field of research offers.
