Professor Yadvinder Malhi is Professor of Ecosystem Science at the University of Oxford where he leads the Ecosystems Group at the Environmental Change Institute. He is also the director of the Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests, a network of university departments, NGOs and local businesses that seeks to address the major issues facing the future of tropical forests in the 21st century.

Dr Patrick Roberts is the head of the Isotope Laboratory here at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History where he has developed a special focus on the human past in tropical ecosystems. He is the principal investigator of the ERC funded Pantropocene Project, which is exploring whether pre-industrial anthropogenic impacts on global rainforests precipitated earth systems changes.
