Well, we’ve heard from Wes and Adele, and now it’s my turn (Phil Jardine) for a bit of a chat on the “Ecology of the past” YouTube channel. Similar to the previous interview videos, I’m talking about my role on the Bosumtwi pollen chemistry project, and what I’ve done (academically speaking) prior to coming to the Open University. Enjoy!

Our next video to be uploaded to the ‘Ecology of the past’ Youtube channel is a short interview with Wes Fraser, Co-Investigator on the Bosumtwi project and developer of the pollen chemistry ultraviolet-B proxy. Wes talks about his role on the project, his background, and what excites him most about this current research. Similar ‘talking heads’ style interviews will follow over the coming weeks for each of the key researchers on the project.

"Ecology of the past" YouTube channel launched

“Ecology of the past” YouTube channel launched

With the redesign and refocusing of the blog underway, I’m delighted to announce the launch of our very own “Ecology of the past” YouTube channel. Initially this will host videos produced as part of the Lake Bosumtwi pollen chemistry project, which includes a strong emphasis on impact and outreach activities. The videos are being targeted to a secondary school/sixth form audience, and will demonstrate both how we are doing the research and who we are as academics, highlighting the different roles and career pathways within the team. As time goes on this channel will be a platform for videos from other members of the research group, again showing who we are, what we do and how we do it.

For now, here are the first two videos: a diary of the field trip to Ghana that Adele and I went on last Autumn, and an accompanying piece showing how you too can make your own pollen trap. Enjoy!

We are now in the centenary year of the British Ecological Society (BES). To celebrate this there is a year long Festival of Ecology which includes many events across the country.

The BES is keen to share events online and these can be followed on twitter with # tags (#BES100, #BESFest) and/or by following the BES (@BESCentenary, @BritishEcolSoc).

Throughout the year we hope to get more and more video content of events and activities online. Here is a quick compiliation of existing BES online video content to give you a taste of what we are building upon!

The first Festival of Ecology video was posted by the Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll team and was shot at the BES annual meeting 2012:

The BES Roadies (@BESRoadies) will be taking ecology to music festivals over the summer. So far we are confirmed at Wychwood and Greenman. More video from the BES Roadies will be posted on our YouTube page.

Other BES video currently online is from:
