My research in a nutshell

In this video Iain describes how the forests of planet Earth provide essential ecosystem services, from carbon dioxide harvesting to water purification and climate control. Iain’s research focus is on measuring and mapping these forests from aircraft and satellite, so as to better understand and quantify the services they provide.
