Dr. Susan J. Mazer, Bass Scholar and Professor of Ecology and Evolution, University of California, Santa Barbara
Topic: Edward P. Bass Distinguished Lecture: “S.O.S. – The Power of Seeds, Observations, and Specimens: Predicting the impact of climate change on plants”
Location: O.C. Marsh Lecture Hall, Yale Science Building, 260 Whitney Avenue
Wild species are often profoundly affected by climate change, but predicting the long-term consequences remains a major research goal. Dr. Susan J. Mazer will discuss the ways in which herbarium specimens, evolutionary seed banks, and both short- and long-term observations of the seasonal cycles of plants can illuminate the effects of climate change on plants at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.
