The Consortium

The consortium comprises scientists already involved in the collection of national data on aphid distribution, phenology and abundance. These are complemented by scientists with specialist interests in the impacts of climate, pollution and land use on biological components of ecosystems.

Below is a clickable imagemap of the members of the EXAMINE consortium. This photograph was taken at a meeting of consortium members at Rothamsted Manor in September 2000.
