Julian Huxley Lecture
"Palaeoecology: “quaint but irrelevant” or essential for conservation biology?"

Date & Time:

Case studies will be presented from on-going research projects in the Galapagos, Madagascar, Tenerife, Mexico, and Congo basin to ask what further information these studies provide when trying to conserve and manage these important biodiversity hotspots.
