Trio Martinů

Trio Martinů

Registration has now closed for this event

Trio Martinů was formed at the Prague Conservatoire in 1990. From the beginning of their work under the auspices of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, where the ensemble developed under the guidance of Professor Antonín Kohout (a member of the Smetana Quartet), the Trio has embarked on a career paved with success and awards. These have included semi-final standing in the international competition at Trapani, Italy and first prize in the international contest of chamber ensembles at Heerlen, The Netherlands in 1995.

Better off alone: biodiversity among soil microbes can be bad news for crops

A recent study found that decreased biodiversity of Pseudomonas, a genus of soil bacteria, is associated with a reduced severity of the fungal disease ‘take-all’ in second year wheat. The work revealed that disease incidence was linked to the wheat variety grown in the first year, and that this also had a profound effect on Pseudomonas species community structure. Now researchers have found that the useful activity of Pseudomonas strains that suppress take-all disease is severely reduced when additional Pseudomonas strains are present.


Twenty years of monitoring in the UK reveals trend for wetter summers, less acidic soils and increasing plant biodiversity

The UK Environmental Change Network (ECN) recently marked the first 20 years of monitoring at its terrestrial sites. The ECN was launched in 1992 to monitor UK environmental change over time, following growing concerns about biodiversity loss, climate change and widespread air and water pollution. Since then, it has recorded data continuously, at a range of terrestrial and freshwater sites, on environmental and ecological parameters.
