International Symposium at Plymouth University, UK
The subject of environmental radioactivity is entering an exciting phase given the anticipated increase in global demand for nuclear energy. Many issues need urgent attention such as the future discharge of radionuclides, the logistics of decommissioning reactors, the potential for nuclear accidents in dynamic environments and the important matter of dealing with historic radioactive waste and that which may arise through the new builds. This two day symposium aims to explore our current knowledge in order to progress the science forward. The symposium will be of importance to all those with an interest in Environmental Radioactivity, its uses and, in particular, regulators and the nuclear industry.
Those intending to participate are requested to email Jenny Spike to express their intent at their earliest convenience, as this will better enable us to determine numbers.
Home gardens can add immensely to the biodiversity of cities and towns.
They provide cover, feeding and commuting routes for wildlife including hedgehogs, badgers, birds and butterflies. If you have a garden, increase its value by planting berry-bearing trees and flowering plants. Rowan, bird cherry and dandelion, among others, can serve as food and shelter to a wide range of invertebrates.
