Join us for an evening celebrating and learning about the biodiversity of the natural world! With talks from professionals working within the local community and scientific research fields, we will be discussing biodiversity on a small scale with the communication between species all the way through to the importance of wildlife within a community and why recording its presence is so necessary.

The Importance of Wildlife Recording

Liam Smith (Communities and Nature Assistant at Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service)
This talk will explore the importance of individual wildlife records, following the journey a record takes from a species being seen to being used in local, national or even global conservation.

Biodiversity of a Single Organism: Breaking Down the Lichen Symbiosis

Dr Klara Scharnagl (Postdoctoral Fellow at The Sainsbury Laboratory)
Symbiosis is the biological phenomenon of different organisms living and working together. These interactions are extremely important and can be seen across the whole tree of life, even in us humans! Klara’s talk will explore this concept and dive deeper into the unique symbioses found in the fascinating, but often overlooked, world of lichens.
