A Changing Planet Seminar: The role of land ecosystems in climate mitigation and adaptation

Bonnie Waring is a Senior Lecturer in Imperial College London’s Department of Life Sciences and the Grantham Institute on Climate Change and Environment. Her work combines laboratory, field, and modelling approaches to understand how the ecology of plant and soil microbial communities controls carbon sequestration in land ecosystems. Her research group is also investigating ways to better manage ecosystems in order to draw down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, by helping forests regrow and by co-deploying engineering and nature-based climate solutions. Dr Waring will discuss the role land ecosystems play in helping society mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis.
