PlaceOnline event

In savannas, a delicate balance between two contrasting life forms - C3 trees and C4 grasses - has existed for millenia. However, the last few decades have seen savannas across the globe being transformed with tree cover rapidly increasing at the expense of grasses, threatening the very existence of this biome. The drivers of this change are under investigation. In this talk, I’ll bring together lines of evidence on the various ‘suspects’ in an attempt to solve the case of the vanishing savannas.

Abstract to follow.
