Marc Kéry: Modeling of species distribution change and range dynamics


Thursday, April 9, 2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
OML 201

The distribution of species is one of the most widely studied quantity in ecology and the change in distributions, or range dynamics, has recently become the focus of interest in many studies. I will present the theory and some applications of dynamic occupancy models, which are one of the simplest possible, but arguably most robust and powerful, modeling frameworks for species dist...

David Western: The changing nature of ecology and conservation in a global age: a view from our savanna birthplace


Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Peabody Museum lecture hall

Within two centuries we have changed nature around the world from locally distinctive ecosystems to human-dominated landscapes. A half century of human and wildlife studies in the Amboseli ecosystem, Kenya, looks at the changes in our ancestral ecosystem, how we are refashioning nature, and the widening meaning and scope of conservation.
