Scottish Herpetology Meeting - register today!

The Scottish Herpetology Meeting 2011 is designed to bring together researchers, workers and hobbyists involved with amphibians and reptiles throughout Scotland.

The meeting will be held on the 5th November 2011 and is being hosted in the University of Glasgow. PhD student Anna Muir is organising the meeting and is currently researching the impact of climate change on common frogs in Scotland.

“Amphibians and reptiles within Scotland are significantly less understood, researched and actively conserved than elsewhere in the UK,” says Anna. “This meeting aims to engage herpetologists who are endeavouring to address this problem and enable interaction, development of links and cooperation to further amphibian and reptile conservation within Scotland.”

The day will comprise of a series of talks and introductions by a variety of speakers, including Froglife Trustee Professor Roger Downie, followed by discussion groups. The meeting will run from 9.30am until 4pm in the Graham Kerr Building and costs £5 for ARG UK members and students and £10 to others.
