Event details

Atmospheric CO2 levels are increasing and face humanity with pressing questions about their future in a high carbon world. The Institute for Life Sciences conference 'Life In A High Carbon World' at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton will bring together scientists who are addressing these challenges.

The conference aims to stimulate discussions across multiple disciplines and promote novel collaborations which improve the understanding on how increased carbon fluxes affect large scale systems and cycles and subsequently, the functioning of organisms, ecosystems and human societies that depend on them.
