Invited talk BETR Workshop: Geobiological Methods and Advances

This workshop at China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, China was to introduce students to the research and innovations of the Biosphere Evolution, Transitions and Resilience (BETR) project; a NERC funded project between several institutions in China and the UK. It included several days of talks in Wuhan followed by a fieldtrip to the Three Gorges Dam region to view the Ediacaran, Ordovician, and Permian–Triassic sequences. The website for the workshop is here.
