Unlocking the secrets of extinct parrots
An insight to some of the world’s most intriguing, but least well-known, bird species has been revealed by Kent researchers. Dr Jim Groombridge and his team in the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE) have analysed tissues from 200-year-old bird skins to reveal exciting new information about extinct parrot species.
Working to plan
During 2010-11, the University made good progress against its Institutional Plan for 2009-12 which is based around six key messages. Work on the Plan for 2012-15 is also underway.
