Dr. Colden Baxter, Associate Professor of Biology and Director of the Stream Ecology Center at Idaho State University, will be giving a special seminar today in SAFS, entitled Complexity and Connectivity in Nature: Toward a Spatial Ecology of River-Riparian Ecosystems.
TODAY, 4:30 PM
University of Washington
Fishery Sciences Auditorium, 102
1122 NE Boat Street, Seattle, Washington
Research conducted in the Stream Ecology Center focuses on rivers and streams, but more generally on the ecological linkages between water and land. Reciprocal connections such as those between streams, floodplains, and riparian forests are critical to watershed ecosystems, and they couple land and water in their vulnerability to the agents of global environmental change. Research led by Dr. Baxter is aimed at improving our understanding of the basic nature of such connections and the consequences of their disruption by human activities, but also contributing to better-informed conservation and stewardship.
