Aug 8: Global Change at the Nexus of Climate, Biodiversity and Disease
- Monday, August 8, 2022
PWIAS Seminar Room 307

Climate change, biodiversity loss, and disease emergence are the most pressing environmental challenges of our time. While the pairwise interactions between climate, biodiversity and disease are well documented, we lack a framework that integrates all three and that recognizes the powerful positive and negative feedbacks between them. This symposium will illustrate recent findings on mechanisms that connect climate change, biodiversity, and disease across multiple disciplines.
This is a series of talks and discussions that we hope will inspire the integration of research disciplines to better understand global change. Guest speakers include Drs. Lauren Buckley (UW), Allan Carrol (UBC), John Drake (UGA), John Gittleman (UGA), Claire Kremen, Patrck Stephens (OSU).
This event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP by July 25 for catering purposes.
This event is cosponsored by PWIAS and the Biodiversity Research Centre at UBC(V).
