The Web of Life - Why Biodiversity Matters!
An illustrated talk by Ray Woods
7.00pm, Tuesday 23rd February at the Herb Garden Café
In his talk, Ray will explore the origins and inter-relatedness of life on Earth. He will be telling us about the latest discoveries about the impact that the evolution of life forms have had on our planet and its climate, and answering questions such as
* Did tiny bacteria turn the Earth into a giant snowball on more than one occasion?
* Why was the evolution of trees and dinosaurs a cause of great concern?
* Are we only here today because of the chance evolution of athlete’s foot and wet rot fungi?
The Earth is entering a new geological epoch of rapid climate change. Can we learn enough lessons from the past to ensure our survival?
Free admittance includes cake and hot drink served at 7pm. All welcome.
