Please mark your calendars for the 24th Energy and Resources Group Annual Lecture on Energy and the Environment on Thursday, April 5. This year’s speaker will be ERG and ESPM Professor John Harte. Professor Harte’s lecture will be part of a celebration of his research career in global change ecology and macroecology. Professor Harte recently transitioned to Professor of the Graduate School.
JOHN HARTE investigates the effects of human actions on, and the linkages among, biogeochemical processes, ecosystem structure and function, biodiversity, and climate. His work spans a range of scales from plot to landscape to global, and involves field investigations, mathematical modeling, and theory development. A long-term climate manipulation experiment in a meadow in the Colorado Rockies and the development and testing of a comprehensive theory of macroecology are among his ongoing projects. He also conducts policy studies that draw out the societal implications of scientific findings. He is a UC Berkeley Professor of the Graduate School and previously held a joint professorship in the Energy and Resources Group and the Ecosystem Sciences Division of the College of Natural Resources.
This event is free and open to the public. ***Livestream link: https://youtu.be/ O2LbtJcIC1s***
