AGU 2016

This year at AGU I was kept busy with chairing a session on Land-use change and giving a talk on biodiversity over the last 300 Ma.

I was the organising convenor for the land-use session, which was very successful, with two oral sessions and over 50 abstracts submitted. There was a who’s-who of LUC, with talks from Julia Pongratz, Dave Lawrence, George Hurtt, amongst others.

My talk was onĀ Biodiversity of Terrestrial Vegetation during Past Warm Periods, showing some work I’ve been doing with a DGVM called JeDi which has enough vegetation types that inferences can be made about changes in biodiversity.
