Lecture 4 – Blog Post


As with last weeks lecture the main thing that I took from it was that of the importance of the community in helping science and the importance of interaction between the two.

Citizen science is an interesting topic for me and one that I hope to look into further. The video posted on the lecture slides ‘Science Nation – Birds, Climate Change, and Citizen Science’ that spoke of the importance of community members monitoring birds in their community and posting the information so that researchers at Cornell University could use that data to gain scientific information shows the importance of ‘adaptive management’ and the joining, not separating of science and society.

I feel that throughout my studies this has been the most important thing for me to learn.
