Monday, May 6, 2019. 2:55PM. Simon Levin, Princeton University. Webinar: Theoretical Ecology: A Century of Progress, and Challenges for the Next Century in the Face of Global Change. Sponsored by Cornell Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, Cornell Institute for Climate Smart Solutions, and the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future. More information here.
Levin is noted especially for his contributions to the development of the foundations of spatial ecology, for his work on pattern and scale, and more recently for his research at the interface between ecology and economics, especially problems of public goods, common pool resources, and the global commons. His book, Fragile Dominion, along with his subsequent research, weaves these themes together, invoking ecological and evolutionary theory to inform principles for management practice.
