Annual Riser Lecture
CONSERVING ANIMALS IS OUR BEST BET FOR CLIMATE GEOENGINEERING
Dr. Os Schmitz
Oastler Professor of Population and Community Ecology
Conserving the functional diversity of animals in food chains creates a broad portfolio of natural means to mediate biogeochemical processes in ways that could meaningfully affect the global carbon budget. Come and learn how mechanisms of animal interactions within food chains instigate multiplier effects that significantly impact carbon storage and exchange among terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the atmosphere.
