Thursday 22 October at 5.30-7.00 PM / Read more >
Plants, animals and other organisms are going extinct all over the world, and all of them are part of ecosystems. But what are ecosystems, and why is it important to preserve them?
Welcome to an evening with experts from the Gothenburg Global
Biodiversity Centre and the Gothenburg Natural History Museum.
Ola Brusehed, educator at the museum, will start this evening with walking us through this important topic using the popular game of Jenga. After this introduction we’ll hear from 3 researchers about their work on ecosystem collapse.
Anne Björkman – Arctic ecosystems
Christine Bacon – Rainforest collapse
James Hagan – Extinctions and ecosystem changes in the ocean
We’ll end the evening with questions and discussions.
