John Birks – At the frontiers of palaeoecology

This week, the University of Bergen is holding a seminar in honour of John Birks and his academic career so far. He retired earlier this year, at least from teaching and administration duties.

Several well known palaeo/ecologists who have either been supervised or otherwise worked with John will be presenting – see the programme for details.

@alistairseddon, @richardjtelford and probably others will be live-tweeting the seminar: follow #HJBB2015.

This seminar follows a special issue (branch?) of The Holocene that was published in January which we managed to keep a secret until it was published. We didn’t do so well in keeping the seminar a secret (someone apologised to John for not being able to come – whoops).

    Woops indeed! It wasn’t me – I’ll be there, and probably tweeting.
