Professor of Ecosystem Science

Yadvinder Malhi is Professor of Ecosystem Science at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford, Programme Leader of the Ecosystems Group at the Environmental Change Institute and the Jackson Senior Research Fellow at Oriel Col...

Understanding the dynamics of carbon and biodiversity across the world’s tropical forests and how these change with our changing climate requires global teamwork and a multidisciplinary approach.

But how can researchers and policymakers work together to monitor and develop the forests impact on slowing, or speeding up, the rate of global climate change.

Join Professor Oliver Phillips, Professor of Tropical Ecology at the University of Leeds, as he discusses with Professor Yadvinder Malhi, Professor of Ecosystem Science, the challenges and solutions of greater scientific capacity and vital on-the-ground evidence to understand how forests interact with climate change.
