Meet the Author

Alan Beeby is the Head of the Division of Environmental Science at South Bank University, London. His first degree was in zoology, geomorphology and quaternary biogeography and he subsequently completed his PhD on the impact of lead on roadsides. His research still follows from this, though now he concentrates on the physiological and ecological impact of lead on key invertebrates. His research also includes methods of validating species which are used as monitors of environmental pollution. Alongside this research, he has published two books on undergraduate ecology, one of which provides a survey of applied ecological methods. Anne-Maria Brennan is a Senior Lecturer in Biological Sciences at South Bank University, London. Prior to this she was educated at the University of York, Imperial College London at Wye, and the University of Wales. She has previously undertaken teaching and consultancy at Imperial College London at Wye, and was a lecturer at the University of Greenwich and the Durrell Institute, University of Kent at Canterbury.
