Special Presentation by Caitlin Moore – BSci (Hons) – PhD student
Savannas dominate the top quarter of the Australian continent and are regarded as one of the world's most pristine natural ecosystems.
They are of incredible importance to indigenous cultures and offer great value to the tourism industry of Australia.
In recent years, Australian savannas have been identified as offering a potential for atmospheric carbon sequestration (uptake and storage) as a means of dealing with increased carbon emissions.
Caitlin will tell us about her PhD field and laboratory research into tree-grass savanna productivity and carbon cycle in tropical northern Australia.
Everybody is welcome at this meeting of Friends of Scotchmans Creek and Valley Reserve
