Science for #food and #environment – Royal Society conference on Science for Defra (#sci4defra)

Last week I spent a day in London at the Royal Society conference Science for Defra (Department of environment, food and rural affairs in the UK), where I helped facilitate one of the tables in the food and farming workshop. I tweeted quite a lot from the day I was there ( see @GeoffTansey and #sci4defra) but was unable to be at the second day that focussed on the natural environment. Here’s the programme:

Upstairs there were 41 posters outlining some of the research being done – from oak die back to animal health, food fraud to biomonitoring, climate change and dietary change. Have a scan through them below and see if any are of interest.
