Illustrated Talks

Wednesday 24 March

‘Exploring Rainforest Diversity’


an illustrated talk at 7.30 pm via Zoom
presented by

Professor Owen Lewis
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford

‘Tropical rainforests support an extraordinary diversity of species, but are threatened by high rates of deforestation and degradation. I will discuss why rainforest diversity is so high, why it is threatened, and how we can maintain it.’


We can not meet at Christ Church for our scheduled programme of talks during the present state of the COVID-19 crisis. The programme will continue through Zoom online video conferencing where possible until such time that indoor meetings are allowed and the committee feel that members will be confident to attend.
