January 19, noon, 139 Shumaker Research Building. Ecologists now recognize cities as ecosystems, providing a new avenue to explore ecological theory in an applied context. This seminar will highlight the ways in which my research integrates ecosystem ecology into the urban setting, including the ways in which invertebrates in human dominated landscapes affect greenhouse gas emissions and heavy metal cycling. The research demonstrates that as the ultimate engineers of the built environment we have the ability to use cities as living laboratories, to create environments that enhance biodiversity and human welfare, and to shape these ecosystems in ways that allow them to function more similarly to their natural analogues and work for us.
