Presentation Title
Ecological Challenges across Land, Water, Space and Time


Abstract

Humanity has embarked on an age of rapid global changes across biophysical and social-economic conditions so great that it has been labeled the Anthropocene. As global climate changes and urban populations expand, society is increasingly reliant on smaller and more fragmented areas for ecosystem services. These services include carbon sequestration, the uptake of excess nutrient pollution, the provision of stable, clean water supplies and biodiversity support. This presentation focuses on how changes in climate and land use affect ecosystems and the services they provide and then, how management might enhance the resilience or adaptation to broad, global changes as well as disturbances including wildfire and pest insects.
