Woodland shadows and ghosts: the lost woods in the landscape.A two-day event on this theme opens tomorrow, with a field visit to the Peak District and then a conference on Saturday at Sheffield Hallam University. The event is organised by Professor Ian D. Rotherham and colleagues at SHU. More info here, but the field visits are fully booked, sorry.
As well as speakers and panel members from bodies such as Natural England, DEFRA and the Woodland Trust, BSBI member Richard Gulliver will be talking about 'Valley Elm Woods: a somewhat controversial lowland ghost'.
Richard will be on hand during the day to answer any BSBI-related questions and will be hoping that any BSBI members attending would come up and say hello.
