The University of Exeter has worked with Natural England on a project that helps to target conservation action. Two reports from the study highlight how future conservation management should identify climate change ‘refugia’. These are localised areas like hills, valleys, moors and mountains, with specific environmental conditions that could allow wildlife to survive, despite climate change making the surrounding areas less suitable.
A team of researchers from the University of Exeter will be heading to London on Friday to showcase their research on badgers and meerkats as part in the Great British Bioscience Festival.
The Exeter Biosciences department is pleased to welcome Dr Stefano Pagliara, recently appointed Lecturer in Biosciences, working on the analysis of single cells with microfluidics tools. Currently based in Lab231 Geoffrey Pope building, he will be moving to the Living Systems Institute to pursue his interdisciplinary projects, which sit at the frontier between Biosciences and Physics.
From putting her life on the line to collect valuable data on ocean acidification, increasing marine education in secondary schools, and improving public engagement with the sciences through social media, Dr Ceri Lewis has rightfully earned her nomination for the 2014 WISE Hero award.
