Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, Mitch and Tom take a deep dive into biodiversity! What is it? Why is it important not only to the world but to humans? More than this, the boys ask the tough questions like what is the difference between a wood and a forest and explain exactly how new species are identified. To round out the show they take a look at the future of biodiversity in our world, how we can protect it, and the plans already in place. Music by: Joakim Karud –
