What do archives teach us about the past natural history? What is the future use of today’s citizen science? In his talk, Stewart Rosell (Girton 2017) will draw upon what he has learnt while studying at Girton College to answer these questions.

Speakers

Stewart Rosell

Girton 2017

In his time in Cambridge, Stewart has learnt new ways of applying his interest in natural history. Before starting university, he focussed on individual projects in which the main output was the data. Through the university community, he has been able to expand on this to use the surveys for community projects and teaching. This has proved invaluable for maintaining the long-term sustainability of these surveys and maximising their social impact. In addition, using historic records from the college archives, he gained insights into the recent history of wildlife in the local area, and the possible future of the surveys he has started
