Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences Seminar
Jesse Nippert, professor of biology, will give a public lecture at 11:30 am on Thursday, October 10 in Ackert Hall Room 231.
Nippert will present the latest climate change forecasts for the central Great Plains along with grassland data from nearly 20 years of experimental climate manipulation studies conducted at the Konza Prairie Biological Station. These long-term experiments provide insight about the conditions under which future climate changes are likely to have their largest effects on the tallgrass prairie ecosystem.
This talk is being presented for students participating in the capstone course of the Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES) Secondary Major and is open to the general public as part of the NRES Seminar Series. Undergraduate students interested in natural resources, environmental science, and sustainability issues are especially encouraged to attend.
The NRES Secondary Major and its seminar series are generously supported by the Office of the Provost, College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, and Department of Geography.
