The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) is set to become one of the world's leading authorities on the effects of climate change.

BIFoRA landmark experiment in Staffordshire made possible by a transformational £15 million gift, the BIFoR Free-Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE) facility is assessing how mature woodland reacts to elevated levels of CO2.

BIFoR's establishment was made possible by a donation from the University's Professor Jo Bradwell (MBChB Medicine, 1986; HonDSc, 2011) and his wife Dr Barbara Scott (BSc Biological Sciences, 1977; PHD Medicine, 1981), with the gift being made through the JABBS Foundation. They are passionate about the global issue of climate change and how our forests are threatened.
