Management for Extreme Climatic Events

Venue: Keele University Conference Park

Date: 17th & 18th November 2005


Exploring the interactions between roots, soil and microorganisms that are part of the co-evolutionary processes influencing tree physiology and health. This will look at mycorrhizae, wood decomposers, soil structure/condition, bacteria and nematodes as a basis for indicators of tree condition, pathology and remediation (before interfering with the above-ground tree).
