Developments in Quaternary Entomology and Environmental Reconstruction – Celebrating Steve Brooks
Enquiries should be sent to Kimberley.email@example.com
Start time: coffee from 9.30am. 10am meeting start.
The Keynote speaker will be Steve Brooks who will give an overview of his career and highlight his key contributions to the field.
There will be 3 themed sessions:
Session 1: Chironomid-inferred temperature reconstructions. This session will encompass talks highlighting the initial development of chironomids as a proxy for temperature. Speakers will include academics who collaborated with Steve and on influential/historic sites.
Session 2: Novel & environmental approaches. This session will look more broadly at chironomids as environmental indicators and innovative research using chironomids. This session will look at potential future directions for the proxy.
Session 3: Other related papers: either on Quaternary entomology or related fields.
The meeting will be followed by a wine reception with colleagues from the NHM to celebrate Steve’s retirement.
Post- meeting dinner at a nearby restaurant to be confirmed closer to the day.
