The Radley Expedition to Honduras in June 2013, led by Head of
Biology, MGN, made the front page of a recent issue of the world's top
science journal Nature, with its cover story on ‘Tree Density
Data collected by Radleians on the 2013 Honduras Expedition formed
part of the data set on which this study was based. The study was coordinated
by Yale University, and credit was given to Dr Steve Green, whom the Radley Expedition
met while in Honduras.
As world leaders gear up for the International Conference of Earth
Science and Climate Change in Paris this October, this is just the sort of
crucial research needed to make a difference. Similar good work will no doubt
be done in due course with the data Radleians collected during this year’s
Honduras Expedition, which took place during the recent Summer Holidays.
