CSEB Research Webinar on March 29 – Contaminants, Climate, Food Resources: Biological Responses to Changing Ecosystems

To be presented on Thursday, March 29 at 10:30am Pacific / 12:30 pm Central / 2:30pm Atlantic Standard Times by Dr. Kirsty Gurney, Research Scientist with Environment and Climate Change Canada and Adjunct Professor with the University of Saskatchewan.

Abstract: Human-caused and natural changes in ecological systems (i.e., environmental stressors) can affect wildlife both directly and indirectly. Identifying such impacts is critical to predicting the effects of environmental change on wildlife and ecosystems, but cause-effect relationships in complex natural systems are difficult to determine. To inform decisions that help to conserve healthy ecosystems, my research aims to improve our understanding of how organisms respond to different types of ecological disturbances. I focus on three environmental stressors – acting singly or in combination – that can alter ecosystem structure and function and will describe current studies related to each of these factors.
