June has been a month of exciting and unusual (for me at least) science communciation. It all started with the end of Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll at Wychwood, saw the publication of an article on environmental research in the Open Minds magazine, and went on to a parliamentry reception celebrating the British Ecological Society Centenary and launching the new Ecological Issues policy document “The impact of exterme events on freshwater ecosystems”.
More regular type activities have also continued. Hayley is working on the protocol for thin sectioning wood here. Frazer is picking midges and becoming increasingly media savey. While Bryan, Lottie and Natalie are all writing theses!
