Science to Go: The Anthropocene Seminar III: Loss of Global Biodiversity
December 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Over the past few centuries, humankind has reached such a level of influence that we have literally added our very own stratigraphic layer to Earth’s system, ushering in a brand-new geologic epoch called, appropriately: The Anthropocene! During this series of three half-day seminars, Dr. Jeff Corney will take you on a trip through the various human-induced environmental issues that have contributed to this new “layer” in Earth’s history: terrestrial and marine habitat destruction and subsequent loss of plant and animal species via pollution, climate change, acidification, overharvesting, poaching, and land use change. This series may be eligible for continuing education credit through Ashland University (if interested, please inquire). Feel free to bring snacks and even a lunch.
Cost: Per Seminar: $30 members / $45 non-members;
Series: $75 members / $120 non-members
