As part of the Addressing statistical challenges of modern technological advances sworkshop, Steve Buckland (University of St Andrews) will give a public lecture entitled

Monitoring biodiversity: problems and solutions

Almost all countries sign up to biodiversity targets set by the Convention for Biological Diversity. Thus to assess whether targets are met, methods for quantifying biodiversity trends are required. I discuss some major contributions to bias in published trend estimates, and how those biases might be reduced. I look at the potential of new technology and of the rise in citizen science in providing more reliable and comprehensive monitoring of biodiversity.

Doors Open: 5.40pm. Talk starts at 6pm.
The talk will be held on the ground floor of the Bayes Centre (Room G.03). All ticket holders are invited to a reception after the talk in the atrium of the Bayes Building.
