Dr. David Karowe-Explorer Lecture

Global, National and Regional Effects of Climate Change on Plants and AnimalsLecture by Dr. David Karowe, Professor of Biological Sciences, Western Michigan UniversityGlobal climate change is likely to be the most serious environmental challenge in human history, with profound implications for ecosystems worldwide. Plants and animals have already responded to climate change by altering the timing of events like flowering and migration, and by expanding their geographic ranges poleward and to higher altitudes. This talk will focus on the consensus projections of climate change during the rest of the 21st century, and the predicted consequences for plants and animals around the world, in the United States, and in Ohio. The talk will conclude with a brief discussion of some of the most promising solutions, including solar and wind power, and altered personal behaviors.This lecture is co-sponsored by The Native Plant Society of Northeastern OhioTickets are $8/Museum members and $10/non-membersFor more information visit the Museum's website: www.cmnh.orgGlobal, National and Regional Effects of Climate Change on Plants and AnimalsLecture by Dr. David Karowe, Professor of Biological Sciences, Western Michigan UniversityGlobal climate change is likely to be the most serious environmental challenge in human history, with profound implications for ecosystems worldwide.
