Frontier Science: Using biological records to understand the impacts of environmental change on wildlife - T97

Friday 6th January 2017

13:00 - 14:00

Speakers

  1. Dr Tom Oliver - School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading

Humans are altering the natural environment through habitat destruction, climate change, and pollution, with profound effects on wildlife. This has the potential to affect the services we derive from nature and which we depend upon; for example, for food production, climate regulation, waste decomposition and even our mental health. Long term monitoring data are essential to track and understand these changes in species that we depend upon. Many such data are collected by trained volunteers (i.e. 'citizen science' data), and their analysis can provide essential evidence on the impacts of human actions, as well as ways to inform more sustainable management of the environment.
