Hosted by experts in the field, these talks provide an interesting insight into various natural history topics. The talks are open to everyone and there's no need to book, just come along.

September 6th: Plastics, plastics everywhere... the impact of plastics on the environment
Dr. Brian Quinn, Reader in Ecotoxicology, University of the West of Scotland
This talk will discuss the impact of contaminants of emerging concern, focusing on microplastics and their impact on marine and freshwater environments.

4th October: Marvellous Mud Snails
Joanne Lindsay (Buglife Scotland)
A two-year Heritage Lottery funded project which began in April 2017, this project aims to conserve and raise awareness of the rare Pond mud snail, which has declined rapidly in Scotland and the rest of the UK over the last 25 years. Using this tiny mollusc as an example, the project aims to highlight the importance of freshwater habitats for invertebrates whilst also creating a healthier and more resilient population of the Pond mud snail in Scotland.

1st November: Renfrewshire Renaissance in Fungi
Dick Peebles (Clyde and Argyll Fungus Group)
Fungi include some of the most important organisms in both ecological and economical terms. This talk will introduce us to fungi's place in the natural world and provide some specific Renfrewshire examples.

6th December: Honey Buzzards in Central Scotland
Chris McInerny
The honey-buzzard is probably Scotland's most enigmatic breeding bird of prey. It is extremely difficult to observe, being rare, secretive and elusive but over the past few years two populations have been discovered in central Scotland and systematic and intensive monitoring has revealed new information about the species' annual breeding cycle. This talk will review the history and distribution of the honey-buzzard in Scotland and summarise the results of these recent studies.

Additional Dates: 06 December 2018
