Defeat Dementia in Down's Syndrome
We are conducting a study based at the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group (www.CIDDRG.org.uk), in partnership with the Down's Syndrome Association (DSA) and the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WIBC) Cambridge to investigate the risk of dementia in people with Down's syndrome (DS).

Why Species are Fuzzy
The ‘species concept’ – the definition of what constitutes a distinct species – has been a headache for biologists for at least 70 years.

Species are demonstrably continuous with subspecies and varieties in nature, and intermediates in the speciation process are all around us. I will illustrate my talk with examples such as butterflies, birds and even whales. Lectu
"Ecology, Human Rights, and Large Dam Projects in South Asia"
