Climate change research at IBAHCM

Leading up to the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference, which will be held in Glasgow between October 31 and November 12, 2021, the Naturally Speaking team felt it was only fitting to highlight some of the brilliant climate change-related research going on within the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine. In this podcast, Naturally Speaking’s Taya Forde and Joey Humble are joined by a panel of our researchers to hear about the varied studies going on within the Institute in this area. We are also joined by two of the curators from The Hunterian Museum who tell us about the special displays that will be on site over the coming months, including showcases of some of this research.
