Conservation Sciences Seminar Series

Conservation through Collaboration, Spring 2019

 

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, collaboration across diverse disciplines and backgrounds is even more important, especially in conservation, where complex issues require creative solutions.  Successful cooperation with people not of our discipline and beyond academia can broaden our scope, strengthen our research, and inspire thinking outside institutional silos.  This semester’s seminar speakers are invited to explore this theme of collaboration in a series of talks ranging from interdisciplinary work and interagency collaborations to connections between ecosystems and conservation across cultures.

Seminar takes place on Fridays from 12:00-1:00 pm in 335 Borlaug Hall.  Coffee/tea and cookies 10 minutes before!
