    Personal profile

    Biography

    Tomos is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience. Tomos’ particular research interest is in identifying ornamental plants that might escape gardens and become invasive in the wild. He has also participated in the most recent Horizon Scan for GB looking at potentially invasive species.

    His research focus is in engaging the public in environmental issues (mainly invasive species) and in science communication. This was the purpose of his exhibit at the Royal Horticicultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show in 2019 with the University of Reading. The exhibit was called 'Ornamental plants: our 'future invaders'?' in the Discovery Zone. Tomos sits on the Media and Communication Working Group for INVASIVESNET and the GB NNSS.

    Tomos also works with the North Wales Wildlife Trust as the Project Manager for the Wales Resilient Ecological Network (WaREN II) which is enabling a more strategic and joined-up approach to invasive species control and management in Wales. Part of this has been the development of the Ecosystem Invaders capiagn with the aim of increasing awareness of invasive species and their impacts in Wales.
