Thrilled to release our first farm extension video in a planned series that is spinning off of our Biodiversity Landowner’s Guide work. Lab project manager Simon Greenland-Smith worked with local video producer Wonderlust on this 90-second piece about the benefits for farm biodiversity of modified harvesting practices: that is, changing the timing, equipment (flushing bars), mowing pattern and blade height to ensure animal survival. Subtitles are available in French.

Have arrived in sweltering Charleston, SC, for ISSRM 2015, to a nearby beach house rented for the Energy team members and some colleagues. It’s a working day, appearances notwithstanding, tackling the data from last fall’s national energy survey, and talking about information disssemination plans and new grants. A long breakfast fuelled some discussion, most opting for ICED coffee given the 33 degree day, but not me. Looking forward to a productive week.
