Webinar: Understanding Species Responses to Climate Change: The Role of Population and Community Ecology

Tuesday, December 1, 2020. 12:30 PM. Webinar: Understanding Species Responses to Climate Change: The Role of Population and Community Ecology. Jonathan Levine, Princeton University. Sponsored by Princeton Environmetnal Institute. Register here.
Levine will illustrate the importance of basic population and community ecology for understanding — and predicting — how changing species interactions influence how ecosystems respond to climate change. Levine will draw from field experiments exposing plants to novel competitors under warmer climate conditions — as well as laboratory experiments on how evolutionary processes influence plant migration — to argue for the interconnected nature of basic ecological research and research motivated by the need to solve pressing environmental challenges.
