How does drought and fire shape our forests today?

Join Tina Bell and Sebastien Pfautsch as they discuss how climate change is predicted to increase the severity and frequency of these disturbances. Understanding their effects and being able to predict their outcomes is important for managing our natural resources.

Tina Bell is an Associate Proffessor, leading the fire research a the Sydney Institute of Agriculture, University of Sydney.

Sebastien Pfautsch also works at the University of Sydney where he is a Senior Researcher of tree physiology and forest management.

This talk is part of 'Undone by Nature.' A special series of exhibitions, talks and masterclasses exploring the way we mimic and design in coexistence with the natural world.
