Surf and Algal Turf – a natural history of Boscombe Surf Reef
Dr Roger Herbert – Senior Lecturer in Marine & Coastal Biology, Bournemouth University
We’ve all been hearing about the Boscombe Surf Reef for many years, with numerous headlines surrounding the controversial project. Whilst it may not have turned Boscombe into Bondi, the surf reef has had a brilliant ecological impact. Roger, along with Josie Pegg, has been monitoring the colonisation of Boscombe surf reef by marine life for the past 3 years. In Decembers Cafe Scientifique they will be presenting some of their findings. If you’d like an idea of what will be covered have a look here: Roger Herbert interviewed by ITV Meridian.
