The 6th Flow Country Research Conference will explore peatland processes, resilience & dynamics under climate and land use change
With fast-changing landscapes under large-scale restoration and increased exposure to climate extremes, it is more important than ever to understand dynamics in peatlands.
What are the key eco-hydrological thresholds in blanket bog landscapes?
How do blanket bogs under restoration respond to droughts or wildfire events?
How can we measures those responses over such large scales?
What are the key ecological indicators of recovery?
How can we maximise resilience through restoration interventions?
These are some of the topics we hope to explore over the three days of the conference.
