Webinar - Climate Change-Induced Wildfire Effects on Soil Biodiversity

Description

Sponsor: Global Soil Biodiversity Intiative

This webinar will explore recent advances in Climate Change research on wildfires and impacts on soil biodiversity. With rising awareness of wildfires worldwide and the release of the IPCC report on Climate Change, and upcoming COP26 in Glasgow and UN Biodiversity Convention in China, the topic is timely. This webinar will focus on new understanding of climate-induced wildfires​, their effects on soil biodiversity and ecosystem processes, and identify research priorities for the future.

Join panelists Elizabeth Wandrag Univ. York, UK, Konstantin Gongalsky, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Marie-Charlotte Nilsson, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Mac Callaham, US Forest Service, Georgia, USA, as they discuss their research, major gaps ​in knowledge, and how soil biodiversity research under global changes informs future land use policy.
