On Monday, 11 January 2021, we were joined by Jamie Lorimer, associate professor in the School of Geography and the Environment at University of Oxford, to discuss his book The Probiotic Planet: Using Life to Manage Life (University of Minnesota Press, 2020).

In The Probiotic Planet, Jamie Lorimer offers a sweeping overview of diverse probiotic approaches and an insightful critique of their promise and limitations. Informed by deep engagement with microbiology, immunology, ecology, and conservation biology as well as food, agriculture, and waste management, The Probiotic Planet offers nothing less than a new paradigm for collaboration between the policy realm and the natural sciences.
