Event description

Description

The Ecological Continuity Trust (ECT) and BES Plant-Soils-Ecosystems special interest group are working together to host this joint two-day science meeting on long-term ecological experiments in plant-soil ecosystems. The event will highlight successful experiments across different types of ecosystems and will showcase the importance of securing and maintaining a national network of long-term ecological field experiments. This event is open to anybody with an interest in long-term ecological research and plant soil-interactions, as well as policymakers engaged in sustainable land management. The meeting will be specifically of interest to students, early career researchers and stakeholders with an interest in long-term ecological research and its service to evidence-based policymaking.

The meeting will be opened by keynote speakers Emma Sayer, Raj Whitlock and Karl Evans from the Buxton Climate Change Impacts Laboratory (BCCIL) who will introduce the long-term scientific evidence produced by the Buxton grassland experiment. The event will cover long-term ecological experiments from grasslands (BCCIL) to woodlands (keynote by Rob Mackenzie), peatlands (keynote by Netty van Dijk) and other wetlands (keynote by Laurence Jones) to high latitude ecosystems (keynote TBC). The meeting is planned to include delegate visits to the BCCIL long-term field experiment on the outskirts of Buxton, hosted by the keynote speakers above and the site owner (Health and Safety Executive), and a citizen science workshop.
