City of Science Series: Understanding Urban Habitats
February 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Ecology has historically focused on natural environments, but scientists are increasingly turning their attention to understanding urban ecosystems. With 50% of the world’s population living in cities — and the heightened risks associated with climate change, green spaces, and flooding — studying urban habitats offers keys to design and planning that can help cities work better. Hear from a panel of CUNY experts in this growing field, including Charles Vörösmarty, director of the GC’s Advanced Science Research Center’s Environmental Sciences Initiative, and others.
Presented with the GC’s Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC).
