Alien Species Talk – Wednesday 23rd November 2016

Alien and invasive species can have a major impact on our native environment, including woodlands, both in the UK and internationally.

Mike Sutton-Croft will be giving an illustrated talk on how alien species can get out of control and how they can be tackled. He is an ecologist and information scientist  and he is well-positioned to give us his expert view from his work for the Animal and Plant Health Agency branch of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).   With more international mobility of people and greater international trade and movement of diverse plants and animals, this is a subject we need to be increasingly aware of, if we are to protect our own local environment.

Meet at 8.00 pm  in  Dunnington Reading Room.

Admission is free to members, non-members £1.50.
