Citizen Science -- a celebration of partnership between academia and local people
Date:2/6/2008

rticular interest is with the limnology (lake ecology) of the soda lakes of the Rift Valley and the flocks of flamingos who depend on them. This is an interest developed since 2000, because of the severe threat to the existence of lesser flamingos caused by insensitive developments, which affect the lakes chemistry.

Dr Harpers talk at the Citizen Science conference, however, will be on 25 Years of Aliens in the Tropical Lake Naivasha. He has studied this lake since 1982, but it was the lake that first gave him the inspiration to become a water scientist when he visited it as a student in the 1970s and marvelled at its wildlife.

Other talks at the event include: 75 Years of Continuous Plankton Survey in the Atlantic (Professor Paul Hart, Department of Biology); 50 Years and Over of Field Botany in the UK (Dr Richard Gornall, Department of Biology); 50 Years of Leicestershire Field Natural History (Mike Webster, Institute of Lifelong Learning); 32 Years of Transformation from Low-Grade Farmland to International Biodiversity (Tim Appleton, MBE and Honorary M.Sc., Warden of the Rutland Water Nature Reserve); 20 Years of Volunteers Survey of Farmland Birds (Dr Ian Henderson, former PhD student, Department of Biology); Farming and Society: 15 Years of Environmental Management Within a Farm Business (Dr Chris Stoate, Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), Allerton Project); and Citizen Contribution to Science the next 50 years (Dr Nigel Winser, Earthwatch Institute).

The conference will be chaired by Emeritus Professor Aftab Khan, Department of Geology, who also has had an even longer association with the Kenyan Rift Valley, through researching its origins and its present-day geological activities.
