YSPH Center on Climate Change & Health Presents: "Climate, CO2, Plants, and Public Health: Ignorance is NOT Bliss"
Dr. Lewis Ziska (Columbia University Irving Medical Center) will provide an overview of the links between climate change, human health, and plant biology, which run from positive (CO2 effects on artemesinin production), to the worrisome (CO2 effects on pollen production and impact on aeroallergens) to the global (CO2 impacts on nutrition). It is hoped that in presenting these links that researchers and other interested stakeholders will get a sense of the importance of plant biology in their daily lives.
Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own utensils and containers.
