How many?

Dr Meg Lowman is the EEMB Seminar Speaker today (Monday 27th), 4:00 pm in the MSRB Auditorium in the MSI Building.

"Plant-insect interactions in tropical rain forest canopies - 10 million or 100 million species?"

Dr Lowman is Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies and Director of Environmental Initiatives, New College of Florida. Meg pioneered the science of forest canopy ecology, helping to develop the current techniques for canopy access and using them to study processes that maintain biodiversity in tropical forest canopies. Her most recent work focuses on environmental education and outreach, the role of science in environmental policy, and the development of research coordination networks (especially NEON).
