Martha is research assistant to Head of Climate Change Research at Earthwatch, an international environmental charity.

“Globally forests are a vital component of the carbon cycle, storing large quantities above and below the ground.There is an increasing need to acknowledge and further understand the roles that forests play in combating climate change through carbon storage and flux. Forest disturbance and fragmentation are increasing globally thus it is important to investigate carbon in disturbed as well as primary forests. In the UK, and across much of Europe, our forests are fragmented due to road building, agriculture and urbanisation. How does this fragmentation influence carbon cycling in forests, and how could this be affected by predicted climate change?”
