Citizen science promoted on Radio 4. 

Just been listening to Lisa Jardine on Radio 4 talking about the rise of citizen science, and interviewing some professional scientists on the subject. Some nice comments about the importance of the data collected by volunteer recorders. 

Although BSBI was not mentioned by name, we have been rather influential in this field - more info here and here. The new Projects page on the website explains what BSBI does with the records collected by our members. 

The Radio 4 programme is called Seven Ages of Science, and is available here on iPlayer until next Tuesday.
