Connections between People & Nature: Biodiversity

September 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation Continue… 

Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to attend Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation, an environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2017 is Connections between People and Nature.

At the September web meeting, we welcome Professor Kerri Crawford, Assistant Professor of Biology & Biochemistry at the University of Houston. In her presentation, Dr. Crawford will discuss global threats to biodiversity and why we should care, including how biodiversity influences natural systems and provides ecosystem services that we rely on.  She will present examples from her own work, such as experiments that tested how plant diversity influences restoration outcomes in coastal ecosystems and how soil microbes influence plant community diversity.  Finally, she will speculate on key scientific questions that need to be answered to understand how ecological communities will change in the future and help mitigate the negative consequences of these changes. After Professor Crawford’s talk, there will be time for Q&A. If you would like to join this online conversation, please register and you will receive an invitation to the web meeting. For more information, contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com.
