4 pm, Tuesday 19th November 2013. Human impacts on 'natural' landscapes, past 
and present.
Katherine Homewood, Dept Anthropology: Pastoralists shaping East African 
James Steele, Dept of Archaeology: Modelling the dynamics of biological and 
cultural extinction
Yijie Zhuang, Dept Archaeology: Early agriculture and landscape change in China.
Room: Taviton (16) 347. All welcome. Note this is a different room from last 
month, same building on the floor below.   Also, we have a 2 hour room booking 
this month, and for all future months, so we can run over the hour, if we 
choose. If anyone would also like to share a few slides on the theme, let me 
know. Some of us may well go for an end of term/festive drink afterwards.

UCL Biodiversity Forum and Seminar Series, 2013-2014
There are a large number of researchers at UCL working on biodiversity-related 
topics, across Geography, the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research 
(CBER), the Environment Institute, Earth Sciences, Anthropology, the Energy 
Institute, Archaeology, Genetics, Evolution and Environment (GEE) and others. 
The Biodiversity Forum and Seminar Series is a chance to talk across 
departments and faculty, to foster greater collaboration (particularly now the 
NERC DTP is funded which can facilitate cross-departmental PhD projects).
The forum met for the first time on Tuesday 19th November, and meets on the 
third Tuesday of every Month, at 4pm, room 432, No. 16 Taviston Road (fourth 
floor, UCL School of Slavonic Studies building), or occasionally room 347 
within the same building. The Forum is intended for post-docs and staff as well 
as masters and PhD students who have an interest in biodiversity, very broadly 
defined, from discovering new species to policy impacts on biodiversity, and 
spanning the past, present and future of biodiversity.
Usually there will be three speakers, each giving 10-15 minute presentations 
around a broad theme. Most months have only two people booked so far, so if you 
would like to speak, please email Dr Simon Lewis (Geography, 
s.l.lewis@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:s.l.lewis@xxxxxxxxx>). PhD students and post-docs 
are encourage to present their work within the upcoming themes.

Refreshments provided. The idea is that having the forum at 4pm means those who 
have to leave at 5pm can, but those that want to chat, can continue.

4 pm, Tuesday 21 January 2014. Planetary Boundaries: useful, an illusion, or 
both? With Geogina Mace and Anson Mackay.
4 pm Tuesday 18 February 2014. Biodiversity responses to climate change
4 pm March 18th 2014. Biofuels and Biodiversity
4 pm Tuesday 15 April 2014. Biodiversity & Geo-engineering
Please pass this message round your networks, and feel free to suggest topics 
and speakers for May and beyond.
