Little Apple Brewing Company, Westloop The Intersection of Climate Change, Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Sustainability. Please join us for this important presentation by BONNIE MCGILL, Postdoctoral Researcher, Burgin and Loecke Labs,David H. Smith Conservation Fellow, Society for Conservation Biology. Dr. McGill is with the Kansas Biological Survey and speaks with authority on 'green' agriculture and food sourcing. The statement on her website is:

We need to figure out how to produce food in a way that nurtures, rather than cripples, the ecosystems we depend on. As we support biodiversity on farms we build resilience into agriculture in a changing climate. I work at the intersection of agriculture, climate change, and water resources to understand how conservation in agricultural watersheds affects water quality and greenhouse gases. By protecting water quality and mitigating climate change we nurture habitat for biodiversity that provides invaluable ecosystem services. I integrate sociology with ecology to understand the human dimensions of nutrient cycling to better inform my models and conservation policy.
