Join us for an evening of light-hearted discussion and debate as we investigate how science has changed over the past 200 years. Moving from a time of gentleman naturalists with the means to explore and describe, experiment and invent to an era of funding applications and directed research, we ask whether things have got better.

With a lively panel of leading field zoologists, science historians and laboratory scientists we air the issues behind the changing disciplines. Should they be funded to explore with no specific question in mind beyond discovery? Are expensive expeditions better than computer-based research? Has science gone to the dogs?
