With Alexandra Reynolds, Newcastle University
Some say that lichens are the living barometers of environmental change and can tell us so much about the world around us if we take the time to listen. Explore all things weird and wonderful as we delve into the miniature world of lichens to find out how crucial these lifeforms are for the health and diversity of our ecosystems. Join Newcastle masters student Alex Reynolds as she discusses the intricacies of the lichens of Corbridge and how the lay of the land and the impact of human activity in the local area shapes the species who live here.
