The Wood for the Trees
Richard Fortey is a former senior paleontologist at the Natural History Museum, London, and is the author of several books, including The Wood for the Trees : A Long View of Nature from a Small Wood, published in May 2016.
He has written and presented for BBC television, is a Fellow of the Royal Society, and the winner of many distinguished awards for his scientific work, including the Michael Faraday Prize for science communication.
Richard is the owner of Grim’s Dyke Wood, in the Chiltern Hills. In his recent book he uses his ancient beech-and-bluebell woodland to tell the wider story of the ever-changing British landscape, the human influence on the countryside over many centuries and the vital interactions between flora, fauna and fungi.
In this talk Richard draws upon a lifetime of scientific expertise and an abiding love of nature.
