Dr Helen Bennion gave a presentation on Using novel palaeolimnological techniques to define conservation objectives for three Cheshire Meres at the Meres and Mosses Forum, held at the University of Liverpool on 16th September. The meeting was attended by a wide range of academics, students and practitioners interested in research on the meres and mosses of Cheshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
