Yesterday we had a visit to the New Forest in Hampshire, as an outing of the Biodiversity Cluster of the School of Geography and the Environment. The visited was hosted by Jonathan Spencer and Alison Field. We learned more about the complexities of ecology, social ecology and planning management in a complicated social and historical landscape. This was a follow-up from a visit last year to a different part of the Forest, and we hope to keep these going for years to come. It was also a good chance for various strands of biodiversity research in the department to interact informally.
