Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Annual Research Seminar

26th November 2016

Click here for this year's programme.

For over 30 years Slapton Ley Nature Reserve and Field Centre have hosted an annual research seminar to provide a platform for a wide variety of research interests linked to this area. The research seminar aims to engage academics, the local community, FSC staff, partners, stakeholders and members with current research issues, and to connect Slapton with wider regional and national research issues and communities.

Last years programme can be viewed here. We hope to expand the range of presentations this year, to continue with the ecological and educational strands of research as well as comments and updates from the local area.
