Event description

Description

Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church in Houston invites you to attend Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation, a free environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2017 is Connections between People and Nature.

At the September web meeting, we welcome Professor Kerri Crawford, Assistant Professor of Biology & Biochemistry at the University of Houston. In her presentation, Dr. Crawford will discuss global threats to biodiversity and why we should care, including how biodiversity influences natural systems and provides ecosystem services that we rely on. She will present examples from her own work, such as experiments that tested how plant diversity influences restoration outcomes in coastal ecosystems and how soil microbes influence plant community diversity. Finally, she will speculate on key scientific questions that need to be answered to understand how ecological communities will change in the future and help mitigate the negative consequences of these changes. After Professor Crawford’s talk, there will be time for Q&A. For more information, contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com.
