A celebration of the academic contributions of Steve Brooks to the field of Quaternary environmental reconstruction.

The one day meeting is intended to bring together Palaeoentomological and more broadly Paleoecological and Quaternary scientists to celebrate the retirement of a key member of the research community; Steve Brooks. Steve played a large role in pioneering the use of chironomids as a palaeoecological proxy in Quaternary sequences and has since been heavily involved in refining the techniques, applying them at sites across Europe and developing novel applications.

The meeting will broadly be based on developments in the field of Quaternary Entomology (specifically the use of insects in reconstructing environment) and change through the Quaternary period but with a focus on the development and use of chironomids as environmental indicators.

Organisers: Pete Langdon, Kim Davies, Stefan Engels & Darren Hall
