*SUMMARY:* “What Have Animals Ever Done For Us?”
Do we really need animals? What’s all this biodiversity stuff anyway? To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity, we’re getting together a microbiologist, an ecologist and an insect-loving entomologist to discuss – over a few beers and peanuts – why would should care about biodiversity at all. Chaired by Wilson da Silva, editor of COSMOS, it promises to be a night of fun, stimulating discussion, a few laughs, door prizes plus real science with a beer chaser. Panelists are: insect-plant relations specialist, Dieter Hochuli; entomology senior lecturer, Sarah Mansfield; and microbe champion, Brendan Burns.
