NREL Spring 2014 Seminar Series

 "Sustaining Mountain Ecosystems and Societies
in the Face of Global Change
Hosted by Katie Renwick and
the Rocky Mountain Environment and Society Group, NREL

Mountain ecosystems are increasingly in the spotlight because of their potential vulnerability to global change. Mountains support unique biological communities, provide important ecosystem services, and are home to millions of people worldwide. Understanding the ecology of mountain systems and how they may be impacted by both natural and human-induced changes is an important step in sustaining these ecosystems and the people that depend on them. This seminar series will highlight recent research on both social and ecological aspects of mountain systems. By exploring a broad range of research themes, the series will take an integrative approach to understanding the benefits that mountains provide and the threats now facing these important socio-ecological systems.

Fridays, 11:00 AM - 12 Noon
A302-304, Third Floor, Natural and Environmental Sciences Building
