    Welcome to the Odour Lab. Part 2

    Welcome to the Odour Lab. Part 2

    Our sense of smell is probably the most primitive of all. The ability to detect chemicals wafting around us, alerting us to nearby food. Or an approaching preditor. In humans, the sense of smell is the first to develop.
    And did you know bees are extraordinarily good sniffers? All the better to seek out flowers.
    Dr James Hayes is from the UNSW Odour Laboratory

    Welcome to the Odour Lab. Part 1

    Smelly industrial and wastewater processing is an inevitable part of life. We need these systems, preferably in a way that doesn't adversely affect communities.
    How do we respond to odours, and what can we do if we live near a smelly processing plant? The way we respond to odours is highly subjective, so how can we measure or report what our noses are telling us?
    These are questions that concern Dr Ruth Fisher. Dr Fisher is a Research Associate at the UNSW Odour Laboratory.

    The future of food

    The future of food

    If there's a triumph of modern civilisation, it's the efficiency with which products such as food are delivered to our shelves.
    That's an amazing thing, but it hides the hugely complicated system that makes it all happen. The largely invisible process can make us blind to our connection to the land.
    Why do we waste so much food, and what can we do about it? What can we do to make agriculture more sustainable?
    We tackle these questions with our guests Dr Bethany Turner and Dr Ro MacFarlane from the University of Canberra. Interview by Rod
