Beavers, Bats and Botany

25 October 2018, Edinburgh

The Scottish Geographic Section hosted an evening of talks presented by three experts in the field of ecology. Dr Roisin Campbell-Palmer provided a fantastic update on the status of beavers in Scotland, their impacts to the environment and the proposed changes to legislation. The tremendous efforts to conserve the alpine blue sow thistle, a plant under serious threat in the Scottish uplands, were highlighted by Dr Aline Finger of the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh. Finally, Neil Middleton of Batability gave his expert opinion on how to undertake good bat surveys, how best to record data and the use of bat detectors.

The evening was well attended by CIEEM Members and we are grateful to all speakers who gave up their time to bring their knowledge and experience to the CIEEM membership. Other talks are proposed for 2019 so please keep an eye on the events pages.
