Quest Lecture: Climate Change, Land Use, Science, and Policy 

When: Wed., April 13, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: Free
Although climate change is having a major impact on biodiversity, land use is considered to be a more immediate threat. However, the current system for managing the impact of land use on wildlife is far from perfect, largely because climate change is not being recognized as a cumulative stressor.As is often the case, there is a massive gap between the science behind these impacts and the policy being implemented to manage them. Life Sciences teaching fellow Kim Dawe will demonstrate the presence of this gap using case studies on white-tailed deer, barren ground caribou, peregrine falcons, and muskoxen, from both the academic and consulting worlds, and discuss how we might try to narrow this gap. Seating is limited.
