Prof Rob Marrs to join Prof Steve Jones in ASE Annual Conference panel discussion

Prof Rob Marrs will join outgoing ASE President Prof Steve Jones and Andrew Miller, MP in a panel discussion on fieldwork at the ASE Annual Conference.

Rob Marrs is the Bulley Professor of Applied Plant Biology in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool.

His research aims to understand how ecosystems change and how they can be manipulated towards desired conservation or restoration endpoints. His main areas of interest centre around the conservation of heathland and moorland habitats and particularly on the restoration of these communities after bracken control and the role of fire.

The Future for Fieldwork in Science Education panel discussion will take place on Thursday 5 January from 16.00 to 17.00 in Room B of the University Lecture Rooms Building.
