Event date: 
Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Event venue: 
BIFoR Research Forest Site at Nobury Junction STAFFORDSHIRE
Event description: 

Global change including increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is expected to alter primary productivity in forested ecoystems with implications for altered carbon and nutrient cycling in soils. You are invited to join us for a day long workshop at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) site near Nobury Juction in Staffordshire.
