Restoring Ecosystems in the Climate Change Era
Presenter: Don Falk, Professor, School of Natural Resouces and the Environment; Joint Appointments in the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the Institute of the Environment, University of Arizona
Ecosystems around the world are facing unprecedented stresses from climate change and direct human impacts. What can we do to help nature survive this difficult period? The tools of ecological restoration will play a big part, but adaptations are needed for the challenges of a changing world. Using examples from the Southwest, we will explore the possibilities for restoration as a practice of ecological healing and hope.
