Wildlife Live Webinar - Time for Trees
About the event
Trees are the lungs of our beautiful planet, yet they face a wide range of challenges. Gillian will reveal the importance of forests on a global scale, how our ecosystems and livelihoods depend on them; and how the world’s biodiversity is dependent on the way we interact with and use our incredible forests and trees.
She will summarise some of the multiple threats facing trees including pests, diseases and environmental conditions among others; and include thoughts about what we can do to protect trees going forward.
Gillian is an applied entomologist with long term overseas experience in more than 80 countries as former Forestry Officer (Forest Protection & Health) with the Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and Regional Coordinator for the Biological Control of Conifer Aphids for the Centre for Agriculture & Bioscience International (CABI).
