This talk will follow on from the Seventeenth AGM of the Friends of the Roman Road and Fleam Dyke

The meeting will start with an illustrated report on the year’s work, followed by a brief interval after which our guest speaker will be Bill Sutherland, Miriam Rothschild Professor of Conservation Biology at the University of Cambridge, Fellow of St Catharine’s College and President of the British Ecological Society.

Prof Sutherland’s research is directed at predicting the consequences of environmental change. He is known for his research on integrating science and policy, particularly in the field of evidence-based conservation. Over the last three decades, his research has spanned several disciplines. Two of his key contributions have been the horizon scanning exercises to identify future priority issues and the 100 important questions in various disciplines: ecology, poverty prevention, global agriculture and food amongst others. He has also worked extensively on bird population ecology and the biodiversity impacts of agriculture.

In his talk Conservation in a post truth world? Bill Sutherland will discuss how we can use evidence including the website www.conservationevidence.com to underpin conservation practice.

This talk is part of the Friends of the Roman Road and Fleam Dyke series.
