Bioenergy crops have the potential to contribute to national renewable energy targets but there are growing concerns that some transitions into bioenergy may not be as sustainable as first thought. This talk will provide an overview of our work which is examining the impacts of land use change to perennial crops and short rotation forestry on soil carbon conservation and GHG emissions in the UK.

Dr Barnes will summarise recent research on farmer's attitudes to climate change, which will provide valuable insight and context for our own research in understanding forest owners and their responses to climate change.
