Nick Littlewood works as an Ecologist at the James Hutton Institute where his entomological interest focuses especially on Lepidoptera and Hemiptera.

He has coordinated a number of research projects on upland grassland, heather moor and blanket bog, where the impact of different types of land management has been measured through the response of the insect communities.

In his seminar "Insects in upland land use research" he will show how monitoring insects in these projects can provide useful insights into site management with potential implications for wider biodiversity.

The talk starts at 4pm and light refreshments are available from 3.30pm.
