Main content

On November 14, John Birks, Professor of Quantitative Palaeoecology, gave his last teaching lecture before he retires in January. He was lecturing this year's cohort of the Bio 250 Palaeoecology course, which was organised by Hilary Birks for a number of years before her retirement last year.

We marked the occasion by joining the Bio 250 students for the final part of John's summary lecture and having cake!

Over a career of 40+ years, it is estimated that John has given around 1400 lectures.
