This conference is a collaboration between Association of Applied Biologists, the JABB foundation and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR).
Its main objective is to explore state-of-the-art scientific evidence showing that higher tree species diversity enables higher productivity and stability, with a lower susceptibility to biotic and abiotic stress, together with a portfolio of ecosystem services, as well as economic and management benefits. Invited speakers will address these broad issues from the perspective of science, industry, economics and politics.
A key aim is to produce a policy document that will inform UK government strategy. In addition, it will produce other outputs such as a Special Issue of the Food and Energy Security journal.
The programme includes presentations by Forest Research’s Bill Mason on ‘re-evaluating the role of nursing mixtures in British conifer forests: their effects on stand productivity and the implications for forest management and by Forest Research’s Nadia Barsoum, on ‘tree identity effects on forest biodiversity, resilience and carbon storage’.
