Brian Ford-Lloyd recently added Professor of Plant Conservation Genetics to the titles of Director of the University Graduate School and Deputy Head of the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham. Well, when I say recently, it was three years ago. Anyway, when you become a professor like that, you’re supposed to give an inaugural lecture. And Brian finally did that last week. By special arrangement, here’s his presentation, entitled “Options for conserving agrobiodiversity in a rapidly changing world.” Now go pre-order his book. Congratulations, Brian!
