IE lists these on its calendar, as well as upcoming talks, seminars, exhibits, and other happenings to help keep the UA community and the general public up to date on the latest environment-related events on and off campus.

Watersheds and Socialsheds: Adaptive Agricultural Systems in the Arid Americas

Watersheds and Socialsheds: Adaptive Agricultural Systems in the Arid Americas

Date: 
Thursday, October 9, 2014

Higher temperatures, more variable precipitation, growing populations, and better economic conditions will push productivity of agricultural systems in the Arid Americas. To adapt to these combined challenges we require a better understanding of how social and natural components of these systems interact.


Changing Geographies of Food

We are living in a new planetary epoch - the Anthropocene - in which humans are changing the environment at a global scale.  Dr. Liverman leads us on an exploration of how our everyday food choices contribute to these changes and are in turn affected by them in an increasingly connected world.

Ecosystem services are the benefits people receive from nature, such as clean water, flood protection, and climate regulation. In recent years, this concept has become increasingly popular among researchers and conservationists.


Cheating in Plant Sex: How the Birds and (especially) the Bees Change the Outcome of Pollination Interactions

Cheating in Plant Sex: How the Birds and (especially) the Bees Change the Outcome of Pollination Interactions

Event Type: 
Talk
Date: 
Thursday, December 11, 2014

Pollinators are often given the image as being benevolent servants to plants. However, if we examine their interaction more closely, we see that pollinator behavior is more complicated than we thought, and the ecological fallout plays out somewhat unexpectedly. This talk will describe these dynamics, using examples from the subalpine Colorado Rockies.
