This year's Thursday Lecture series centers around the theme "Environments and Species in Peril". We are hopeful that these talk will generate discussion between students and the community concerning the definition of peril in conservation. Specifically, we hope to discuss whether our personally held distinctions and biases about what is truly perilous may cause us to apply the "peril" label too late, or not at all, even though ecosystems and species may naturally occur in a delicate balance.
Schedule of Talks:
