This is the third episode in our series dedicated to the CANN project. Our guests are Professor Frances Lucy who is Head of Department of Environmental Science and a long-term researcher at the Atlantic Technological University in Sligo and Dr Joerg Arnscheidt from the School of Geography & Environmental Sciences at Ulster University.
During our conversation, we talk about the importance of biodiversity and ecology of the freshwater sites that are part of the CANN project. They include Lough Arrow in Counties Sligo and Roscommon in the Republic of Ireland and Magheraveely–Kilroosky Lake Cluster, a group of seven freshwater lakes and one wetland area in Counties Fermanagh and Monaghan, straddling the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Enjoy our conversation and don’t forget to tune in to the next and final episode dedicated to the CANN project in which we talk about blanked bogs.
