Biome-level vegetation response to future global change: implications for future flood risk

This short video produced by Dr. Sven Batke, highlights some of the SBES's forefront research on climate change. It features the work of Prof. Jennifer McElwain and her team who have taken to the challenge to study climate-vegetation responses to future predicted changes in climate. This Science Foundation Ireland funded project is investigating whether future changes in plant physiology, driven by rising levels of carbon dioxide, will enhance global runoff and flooding risk.
