Date: November 25, 2015 Time: 17.30-19.00 hrs Place: room C63, Leeuwenborch In the wake of climate change many species are no longer able to survive in the habitats that were once suitable for them. Should nature management strategies be changed in order to respond to the challenges of climate change? More specifically, should we employ novel strategies such as assisted migration: assisting species to move into other niches and to other latitudes that are more favourable to their survival? Or should we not meddle in the organization of ecosystems and let nature herself take care of these challenges? In this seminar Clare Palmer and Brendon Larson will give a lecture on this topic, followed by a general discussion with the audience. Clare Palmer is Professor of environmental and animal ethics at Texas A&M University. She has written several influential books, amongst which Animal Ethics in Context. Brendon Larson is Associate Professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Larson was trained as an evolutionary ecologist and now does interdisciplinary research into the conservation of biodiversity.
