BIFoR FACE In Situ Experiment - Modelling the Response of a Temperate Woodland to Increased Levels of Carbon Dioxide - NaturPhilosophie
If the Forest Won't Come to the Experiment, Why Not Bring the Experiment to the Forest? The role that plants play in absorbing carbon dioxide is one of the great unknowns of climatology. Now, an industrial-scale experiment in a Staffordshire forest has been designed to help fill gaps in our knowledge about climate change. The BIFoR FACE experiment will be one of four in different countries measuring the effect of increased CO2 on trees in the forest environment - the first of its kind in Europe.
