FACE Publications 

As our first cohort of PhD students start to submit their thesis in 2020 we are certain many more papers will follow, indeed our pipeline of papers is looking impressive.  In the meantime below are some of our current papers. Please note these are related to projects from across the BIFoR FACE woodland we call 'Mill Haft'. For example some of the research was completed using samples from the small stream that runs through the woodland. A list of all the forest research related papers from people within the Institute, including wider forest related landscapes and forest health, is also available
