The Laboratory with Leaves … Part 11

The detailed and quirky diaries of the ‘Father of Ecology’, Charles Elton, are the subject of the latest film in the Laboratory with Leaves series, available now on YouTube. Elton’s work paved the way for all the research that is now done at Wytham Woods. Written over 20 years of study, his diaries offer an intriguing insight into the ground-breaking scientific observations of the time, preserved on paper to offer today’s researchers a window into the past.
