On the afternoon of Thursday 22 November, Professor Bill Kunin will give the following talk in the session entitled “Adapting to change”.

“Shifting population and biodiversity patterns in a changing world” – This talk will focus on how climate and land use change affect insect and plant populations and species richness, and the ways spatial scaling patterns can shed light on these dynamics.

Bill Kunin is Professor of Ecology at the University of Leeds.  His research focuses on population and community ecology of plants and insects (especially pollinators), both in the UK and across Europe and Africa.  He has played a significant part in documenting declines in pollinator diversity, and shifting patterns of plant communities, making frequent use of NBN data in his research
