Protecting life’s tangled ecological webs

By combining biodiversity modelling and network analysis, researchers show how important it is to keep habitats connected
Tue, 2017-05-09 11:39

Ecosystems are a complex web of interactions. These ecological networks are being reorganized by extinctions and colonization events caused by human impacts, such as climate change and habitat destruction. In a paper published this week in Nature Ecology & Evolution, researchers from McGill University and University of British Columbia have developed a new theory to understand how complex ecological networks will reorganize in the future.

New Nature Talks @ Redpath Museum : Dürer's rhinocerus

Redpath Museum : auditorium, 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4
Price: FREE, Everyone welcome.
By Catherine Polcz (Natural Resource Sciences, Macdonald College, McGill)

In this talk, the first of the New Nature series, Catherine Polcz will explore the curious story and cultural meaning of Dürer's rhinocerus, a 1515 woodblock print made by the German artist Albrecht Dürer.  Given as a gift to the Portugeuse king Manuel I, the rendered rhinocerus was the first seen in Europe since Roman times. Despite the animal's short life and tragic death, the rhinocerus quickly became an emblem of both Roman antiquity and an expanding world.
