Forests, climate, insects and people; A story of spruce forests in Central Europe and a lesson for Scotland

Prof. Adam Kleczkowski (Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde) is a member of the PHCs Science, Advisory and Response Team and has kindly produced a blog for the PHC in which he writes about the history of Spruce forests in Europe, and the lessons that need to be learned and incorporated into decision making for Scotland's forests moving forward; i.e. the plant health and climate change issues that they may face over the coming years.

Adam's blog can be found on his own blog site, Statistically (in)significant. We thank Adam for taking the time to 'put pen to paper' and encourage you to read his article.
