How soils influence vegetation: Africa, SE Asia and Northern England

Friday 19 October 2018.

The relationships between soils and plant communities can often be far from straightforward. In order to illustrate the difficulties and provide some of the answers, including how soils can be used in habitat assessment, Dr Robert Payton will draw upon his extensive work in tropical rainforests and savannas, as well as in Cumbrian woodland and Northumberland moorland.

Robert Payton, until his retirement, was Senior Lecturer in Soil Resources at the University of Newcastle, where he is still a Guest Lecturer. Previously, he had worked for the Soil Survey of England and Wales, when he was involved in soil mapping, especially in Northumberland.
