Forests, Fires & Landscape

Managing and protecting landscapes and the roles they play requires a broad understanding of environmental heritage, how landscapes function and their use and importance to society.

The Forests, Fires and Landscapes research theme covers research on ecosystem function and environmental impacts and changes, looking at forests and landscapes from the molecular level through to the ecosystem level.

The key areas of research includes; fire in the landscape, wood production, climate change impacts and mitigation, and water quality. The work in this area investigates pressing national and global issues at the forefront of public debate and societal relevance.
