The Future of Biodiversity in the Pacific Region: Conserving a Threatened Island World [webinar]

Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 09:00 to 10:00
Webinar link will be provided upon registration

This webinar is the first of the U.S. - Japan Dialogue Series on the future of climate, presented by the OIST Foundation. 

“Islands” are often compared to the concept of canaries in the coal mine when it comes to climate change. It is on islands that we often see the initial signs of climate change and where it can have rapid impact on biodiversity and signal changes that will soon be coming to other parts of the world.

Join the OIST Foundation as we  explore this topic with panelists  Dr. Evan Economo (Professor, Biodiversity and Biocomplexity Unit – OIST) along with Dr. Rosemary Gillespie (Professor and Schlinger Chair of Systematics, Essig Museum of Entomology, UC Berkeley) and Dr. George Roderick (William Muriece Hoskins Professor, Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management – UC Berkeley), who have both been engaged in working on such issues on Pacific Islands for the past 30 years.
