In this public lecture, Prof Andy Lowe speaks about the use of DNA to potentially solve conservation problems, particularly with regards to timber tracking.
Rainforests, the lungs of the planet, clean massive amounts of air and water.
The conversion of these forests into agricultural and urbanised systems is inherently linked to illegal logging.
“This is not a bleeding heart conservation talk. This is a talk about hope… about how technology can help save some of our planet’s resources”, says Prof Lowe.
