Linnean Society Debate! - Agricultural policy and biodiversity

The Linnean Society hosts a great series of free lectures and debates at its charming headquarters in central London. On November 15th they are hosting what promises to be a lively debate entitled "The effect of the Common Agricultural Policy on biodiversity in this country", which I think many of us would find interesting and thought provoking. After all, agricultural practices and the fate of local biodiversity are inextricably linked!

The Linnean Society is located at Burlington House, between Piccadilly Circus and Green Park Stations, on Piccadilly. It's right inside the gates for the Royal Academy of Arts (black gate, big stone courtyard, red flags), to the left. We will gather in the courtyard near to the door of the venue at 5:30. If you are unable to come after all, please change your RSVP to not attending so that I know who to expect. If you have to cancel last minute, send me a text (I will be emailing my phone number to all attendees). We will wait until 5:45 and then we will go in and have tea in the library and get seats for the lecture, so if you arrive after 5:45 please just come right in and send me a text or give me a call to let me know you're there so we can find each other.

For more information on the debate and on the Linnean Society in general, please see:

I can't think of a better (nerdier) way to spend a Thursday evening!

    The debate was interesting and lively and once again the venue was fantastic. Great folks turned up and we enjoyed a nice glass of wine in the library afterwards, which was a lovely touch. I agree with Dirk that i expected a bit more of an introductory talk, but overall a very positive and interesting evening.

    Good and interesting afternoon. Fantastic library! Three stars only, because I expected there to be more of an introductory talk. My fault - it did say debate quite clearly. I felt I could not contribute to the debate, not knowing enough about the topic.
