Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Franziska Schrodt, Dr Malcolm Hunter, Mr Derk van Ree, Professor W Daniel Kissling, Dr Richard Field and Dr Joseph J Bailey.

Geodiversity, heterogeneity of abiotic nature, is both dynamic and crucial to Earth’s systems. Yet, human-induced change threatens geodiversity globally. This meeting brings together experts across disciplines, strengthen the intellectual core around geodiversity science and enhance its policy impact by developing ‘essential geodiversity variables’, related to human well-being, sustainability and natural resource management. This will initiate a new field of transdisciplinary science. 

More information about the schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be available in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
