If you have a question about this talk, please contact Emily Chillingworth.

Given powerful arguments to conserve biodiversity but also increase food production, should we farm intensively on some land sparing the rest for wildlife, or should we farm less intensively on a larger land area with agriculture and wildlife sharing the same land?

Brief introductory remarks from the panellists will be followed by a chaired discussion with the audience and a drinks reception.

The panel members are:

• Caroline Drummond, Chief Executive of Leaf, UK

• Professor Jane Hill, Department of Biology, University of York

• Professor Charles Godfray, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford

• Professor Ottoline Leyser of the Sainsbury Laboratory will chair the discussion
