Every year, the OCTF hosts the OCTF Members' Day, featuring a series of presentation on the network's latest work research in tropical forests.
This event is a great chance to be updated on the work currently undertaken in Oxford as well as a good opportunity for networking.
The event runs in the afternoon and is followed in the evening by a drinks reception.
The first Members' Day was held on Wednesday 13th of January 2010 at the OUCE.
