ANU Public Seminar - Forests and water - advances and controversies

Reliable water is essential to our lives and livelihoods, but more than half the world’s population suffer from water scarcity.

While recent research has increased our understanding of how trees and forests influence water availability, nonetheless major controversies remain. For example, new research suggests that forests and trees play a much greater role in maintaining global rainfall patterns than was previously realized. Could this mean a whole new value for forests? Come and decide for yourselves as Douglas Sheil from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences' Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management (MINA) discusses this new research.

(The talk is aimed at a general audience and will not assume technical knowledge)
