Gund Institute for Ecological Economics is hosting: Paul Ehrlich
Dr. Ehrlich is one of the world’s most renowned interdisciplinary scientists, leading a remarkably broad array of scientific and policy pursuits. He has developed long-term studies of the structure, dynamics, and genetics of natural populations. He co-founded with Peter Raven the field of Co-evolution. He helped form the modern field of Conservation Biology. And he has been a pioneer in raising issues of population, resources, and the environment as matters of public policy. More recently, Dr. Ehrlich has led efforts to unite ecology with economics in advancing issues of ecosystem services and global sustainability. His current focus is on developing the Millennium Alliance for Humanity & the Biosphere, which he co-founded to understand human behavior and its importance to environmental issues worldwide. Dr. Ehrlich is an engaging speaker, unafraid to be provocative and challenging.
