Biological Sciences Series: "Global Change on the Emerald Planet"

-

Location: 283 Galvin Life Science

The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame is pleased to present a seminar by Adam Wolf, Ph.D., associate research scholar in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University.

The seminar, "Global Change on the Emerald Planet," will take place at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1 in 283 Galvin Life Science.

From Dr. Wolf's webpage: My research investigates the role of plants as they regulate water, carbon, and nutrient cycles between the soil and the atmosphere in different ecosystems, with the goal of sustainable management of Earth’s natural resources by improved understanding of state and process. A central theme is the translation of processes between scales, from species to biome, from leaf to crown, from stand to continent. Along the way, many different tools can be brought to bear, including remote sensing, embedded sensors, flux measurements, phylogeography and ecoinformatics, data assimilation, numerical and theoretical modeling, and novel statistics.
