The 2013 Conference of the Minnesota Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology will feature a morning symposium that provides an overview of human impacts on the world and Minnesota and discuss a new tool that helps us understand our impacts and develop cutting-edge approaches to protect biodiversity. A panel of presenters will then explore novel approaches to conservation planning, implementation, and management that are emerging to address conservation in cropland, rangeland, residential and wildlands. The symposium will set the stage for others to discuss their latest work in conservation science, policy, and practice.
The keynote speaker will be Erle Ellis, Associate Professor of Geography & Environmental Systems, University of Maryland and feature Carrol Henderson, Mn DNR Nongame Wildlife Program Supervisor.
