The Biological Records Centre (BRC) - the organisation that started modern biological recording in the UK - are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a symposium in June this year. The symposium is free to attend and I thought it would be of great interest to FSC Biodiversity Fellows. Here's a message from the BRC...
Apologies if you have already received this notification through other routes.
We are pleased to announce a symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of the Biological Records Centre. We hope that you will join us in celebrating the rich and inspiring legacy of biological recording in Britain and Ireland. The symposium will review the causes of change in species distributions and consider the opportunities for biological recording which will be presented by scientific and technological developments.
The symposium will be held in Bath from 27th to 29th June 2014 and will be combined with a field visit to Salisbury Plain – see http://www.brc.ac.uk/brc50.htm for more details, including how to register.
There is no charge for attending the symposium but pre-booking is essential. Please pass onto any contacts who may be interested in attending.
