[EVENT] UCCRI Interdisciplinary Conservation Graduate Group talk
Our UCCRI Interdisciplinary Conservation Graduate Group’s next exciting talk is from Jennifer Hoyal Cuthill, from the Department of Earth Sciences: ‘Environmental change and co-extinction risk in Australian crayfish and their flatworms’
Our group (http://research-institute.conservation.cam.ac.uk/student-group) was set up last year to bring together graduates from across the disciplines within the University, whose research is related to the environment and society. So far researchers have joined us from geography, land economy, social anthropology, HPS, Archaeology and Anthropology, Architecture, Plant Sciences, Zoology and Earth Sciences.
We welcome graduates from many other disciplines with conservation-related interests and we hope very much to see you at our interdisciplinary conservation talk on Friday 5th December at 12.30pm Room 206 William Hardy Building on the Downing Site
Please note that lunch will be provided.
