By Margaret Kalacska (Associate Professor, Geography, McGill)

Remotely sensed data from aircraft and satellite platforms have become increasingly important tools in geography to model landscape characteristics, monitor changes over time, as well as to locate specific features of interest.   In this presentation I will use examples from ongoing research projects to illustrate the utility of these tools for large-scale landscape characterization in both temperate and tropical ecosystems.  I will also introduce ‘Mission Airborne Carbon

Cutting Edge Lecture in Science: The challenge of tropical forest ecology

Thu, 2013-11-14 18:00 - 20:00

Price: FREE, Everyone welcome.

By Catherine Potvin (Principal Investigator, Neotropical Ecology Lab, Biology, McGill).  

Dr. Catherine Potvin’s lecture will be a journey to Panama where she examines the importance of tropical forests for the global carbon cycle.  The presentation will start by setting the context of the international climate regime, followed by an examination of the challenges that scientists face when estimating tropical forest carbon stocks. This will bring her to talk about the people who live in, and from, the tropical forests of Panama.
