Alex Chepstow-Lusty

Associate Researcher, Quaternary Palaeoenvironments Group, University of Cambridge

I am a researcher who uses environmental records, particularly from the Andes and sub-Saharan Africa, for revealing the nature of human impact and climatic change in the past, as they are relevant for understanding current issues of conservation, agriculture and sustainability. I consider a historical perspective has to feature in present decision processes of land management as often appropriate solutions have been used successfully in the past by local people, but forgotten or ignored.
