Rebecca Nesbit - Tickets for the Ark

Season 2, Ep. 5

On this episode of NonFicPod we’re talking bees vs wasps, the ethical case for genetic modification, and why large herbivores are ecological engineers.

My guest Rebecca Nesbit studies ecology, conservation ethics, food security, crop biotechnology, climate change, science policy and citizen science. In her previous book, is that fish in your tomato, she explored the science and ethics of genetic modification.  In her latest book, out on the 17th of February, Rebecca looks at what we choose to save in this age of extinction, and how we should decide.
