About the workshop

In this workshop, ecological consultant Matthew Bowell explains how academics and practitioners can better share knowledge from the field through grey literature for effective conservation action and progress.

About the speaker

Matthew Bowell is an Associate Ecologist at Atkins in the UK with over 20 years’ experience as an ecological consultant.  During this period he has worked on a wide variety of development projects, including large and complex infrastructure projects and assessed impacts on sensitive ecological receptors. He has carried out ecological survey, evaluation and assessment, and designed and implemented mitigation.  Matthew is a strong believer that development control, policy and legislation protecting natural resources should be rooted in good science, that assessment of impacts and design of mitigation should be informed by current research and techniques and that there should be a dialogue between academic ecologists and consultant practitioners.
