A LATE CHANGE to Thursday's talk as the planned speaker is unwell. 

Patrick De Dekker will now be talking about ‘The first expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula some 125 years ago - Amazing scientific achievements of great relevance today for the biota already affected by global warming’.

This replacement talk is delivering new results from the Belgica expedition and is a progress report on a book that Patrick is in the process of writing.
