Welcome to Membra

Understanding Memory of UK Treescapes for Better Resilience and Adaptation (MEMBRA) is a UK Treescapes project that looks at the memory of trees using cutting-edge molecular biology techniques to understand how past stresses are maintained and transmitted through generations.

MEMBRA also explores how our understanding of tree memory impacts the language that describes treescapes and this influences human interactions.

MEMBRA is a unique project that brings together artists, classicists, geographers and molecular biologists that has an overall aim of improving future Treescapes.
