Department of Entomology - Hopkins Colloquium Series
1:30 p.m. Friday, April 11, in 103 Cardwell Hall
Dr. Claire Kremen, a premier international conservation biologist, will present "Restoring Pollinator
Communities and Services in Intensively Managed Agricultural Landscapes."
Dr. Kremen is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, where she has been conducting international research and application programs directed at species conservation and the integration of conservation with human-directed ecosystem services. Her work has been chiefly focused on a growing global crisis — the conservation and encouragement of pollinators in the face of increasing urbanization and other stressors — and she has achieved remarkable success with her domestic and international programs.
The seminar series was established through the generosity of Ted Hopkins, former faculty member in the entomology department.
