BECC 4C Excursion: Field signs of natural and managed forests

21 June 2022 09:00 to 22 June 2022 15:00 | Theme meeting
Two types of forests. Photo.
Figure 1. Example photographs of (a) a naturally regenerated forest, and (b) an adjacent forest plantation. The photos origin from southern Sweden.

Humans use more than 75% of the global land surface, altering vegetation, hydrology and soils. Understanding human influence and global environmental change on the environment is key to be able to predict environmental changes and accurately identify drivers and solutions. If we for example see large changes in an ecosystem and link this to climate change, when it is instead a result of recovery from past land use, our predictions of future changes will be fundamentally flawed. In this excursion we will visit forests with different land use history.
