This chapter discusses the impacts of environmental changes to Wytham Woods. It tackles the environmental issue of climate change and relates this to the studies done by the Environmental Change Network at Wytham. It presents data from ECN that includes measurements ranging from measurements of climate and stream flow, recording of plant species in plots, and populations of species. It enumerates data on land management, and separates the effects of local changes from larger scale changes in climate and air pollution, such as the Upper Seeds climate change experiment, and the woodland trees and their interactions with the atmosphere. It also looks into the notion of Wytham acting as a guide for management and conservation in the global scale.

Keywords:   environmental changes, Wytham Woods, climate change, Environmental Change Network, air pollution, conservation
