SEMINARI: The human dimension of biodiversity change on islands
Cicle de seminaris IBB
Ponent: Sandra Nogué (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals, CREAF)
Data i hora: dijous 24 de març, 16:00h
Lloc: Sala Salvador de l’IBB
In this seminar I will talk about the latest findings from collaborative projects on the impact of humans on island’s biodiversity. The findings suggest that the rate of change on plant biodiversity increases significantly during the years following human settlement, with the most dramatic changes occurring in islands settled in the last 1500 years. We also will discuss how our results may help to inform targeted restoration efforts and provide greater understanding into plant biodiversity change.
