CHANGING FORESTS IN A CHANGING CLIMATE: What Might the Future Hold?

A Royal Society Victoria presentation by Professor Patrick Baker, Professor of Silviculture and Forest Ecology, Melbourne University.

Professor Baker brings a thought-provoking perspective on our history of drought and its effect on our forests, and how those forests should be managed into the future to militate against the adverse effects of drought. Of course low intensity fuel reduction burning remains a critical part of effective forest management.

Finally, at 56 minutes some may consider this a long presentation but it’s worth attention through to the end.
