New NRS Forest Science seminars programme announced

Forest Research have announced a new series of seminars, starting at the University of St Andrews where Nick Hanley will be presenting “Estimating the preferences of the general public and forest managers for disease control options” on the 28th of October.

This seminar will discuss choice experiments with the general UK public and with woodland owners/managers on the issue of new invasive diseases. Essentially, in the former case, we quantify what the public are willing to pay for forest disease control; whilst in the latter we look at which factors affect the willingness of forest managers to engage in disease control.

For full details of all upcoming seminars, including how to book your place, head to the Forest Research website.
