Published abstract: "Emma Smith has completed a PhD on bird welfare and is a post doctoral researcher at the University of Bristol where she is investigating the visual capabilities of birds. She is also in the T.A. and a part time member of staff at the University officers Training Corps - an organisation that develops leadership skills in University students. While at first glance this might seem a most unlikely combination of jobs, in fact an understanding of animal behaviour and soldiering have long gone hand in hand. Emma will describe how birds and other animals have been used in warfare throughout the history of human conflict. If you are interested in hearing about amazing animal capabilities, military history and stories of incredible human and animal bravery, this talk is for you."
