SCENE, located on the shores of Loch Lomond, is the University of Glasgow’s environmental science field station. Established in 1946 as the first of its kind in the UK, SCENE’s access to Loch Lomond’s pristine aquatic and terrestrial environments makes it ideal for research, teaching and training in ecology and environmental science.
SCENE researchers’ work on terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems addresses fundamental and applied questions in ecology, evolutionary biology, physiology and disease ecology.
Chief Scientific Advisor for Scotland, Professor Muffy Calder officially opened the new extension, The Harry Slack Teaching Building. She said: “Scotland’s natural landscape has inspired people for generations, and this is a wonderful setting for science research. Scientists at SCENE are well placed to help us understand more about our environment, and to give us the tools we need to make best use of it and protect it for years to come.”
