Three experts from across campus will each discuss their research related to biodiversity and conservation and respond to questions from attendees.  Their research ranges from identifying new species, to conserving biodiversity while enhancing the well-being of the world’s poorest people, to rethinking cities with ecology and biodiversity in mind.  This panel presentation will be an opportunity for people to come together in the Funk ACES Library to learn about and discuss research related to one of the world’s major challenges – biodiversity and conservation.

Panelists:

  • Milton Tan (Assistant Research Scientist in Biodiversity Genomics)
  • Daniel Miller (Assistant Professor of Natural Resources & Environmental Sciences)
  • Conor O’Shea (Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture)
