Food security and Biodiversity

The second of three workshops at University of Bristol looking at Mainstreaming Biodiversity. Also part of my Climate change and agriculture series, funded by the Cabot Institute.

There was a diverse group of attendees and speakers. We were lucky to have talks from Tom Powell (University of Exeter), who works on understanding plants’ role in the Earth system and human influences on this relationship; and Calum Brown (University of Edinburgh), who models human decision making in land use.

From University of Bristol, we had talks from Mark Eisler, whose research is on global farm animal health; and Alan Feest, an expert on the measurement and modelling of biodiversity.
