Thomas, Chris

Professor Chris Thomas FRS is Director of the interdisciplinary Leverhulme Centre for Anthropocene Biodiversity. He has written over 350 scientific publications and an acclaimed popular science book, Inheritors of the Earth: how nature is thriving in an age of extinction, which was listed in The Times, Economist & Guardian Books of the Year for 2017.  Chris and his research group are interested in understanding how humans have transformed the biological world, and how humans might protect the world’s remaining biodiversity. He argues that we should accept and even facilitate biological responses to a changing world, more often take on unending battles to keep the world as we imagine it once was, and that we focus on tackling the underlying causes of change rather than treating the biodiversity symptoms of change.
