About the Project
Closer to home, we are working with Natural England and others on the conservation of rare British Beetles. This involves autecological studies, habitat management and assessments of genetic diversity and relationships between populations.
The beetle conservation work is being extended to include studies of the genesis of endemic insects in Britain, particularly with Lundy Cabbage in the Bristol Channel.
