Robin Chazdon, CTEC Symposium SpeakerKeynote Speaker: Dr. Robin Chazdon

Dr. Chazdon is a professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut and is internationally known for her work in the wet tropical forests of Latin America. Her projects include annual vegetation censuses for chronosequence predictions, documentation of factors that influence the spatial and temporal dynamics of seedling, sapling, and tree regeneration in second-growth forests in Costa Rica, and the monitoring of forest plots in Osa Biological Corridor to evaluate changes in carbon storage and biodiversity during forest regrowth.

Overall Goal

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together professionals, scholars, and practitioners with differing backgrounds in economics, politics, anthropology, natural sciences, business and management, as well as students and educators, to explore the effects of climate change on tropical developing regions. This will allow participants to develop an understanding based on different views of these topics as well as observing the broader range of changes in ecosystems, advances in strategies, determining biodiversity risk, understanding health issues, and managing carbon markets.
