Farm Livestock as Vital for Genetic Diversity as Wildlife

Professor Geoff Simm urges us to value and conserve the genetic diversity of British farm livestock. One way to do that is to support the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

I’m grateful to my fellow blogger Abdul Raziq Kakar (raziqkakar) at camel4all (Camel, Food Security and Climate Change) for drawing attention to Prof Simm’s words.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
