Ryan attends forest fragmentation workshop at Imperial College London

A recent workshop at the Silwood Park campus of Imperial College London brought together field biologists, experimentalists, and theoreticians to study the problem of forest fragmentation and biodiversity loss. Participants discussed a wide range of topics, from large-scale tropical deforestation experiments to mathematical models of fragmented species–area curves to experiments on microbial communities. The workshop has instigated exciting new research projects.
