Event Details

Recent advances in understanding and measuring biodiversity have important implications for science and conservation. Biodiversity has previously been defined as the number of species in an area. But we now know that biodiversity is not only about species — biodiversity is the giant genealogical tree of life that connects all living organisms, including humans. All lineages of the tree matter, not just species, and not just humans.

Brent D. Mishler is Director of the University and Jepson Herbaria at University of California, Berkeley, as well as Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology, where he teaches phylogenetic systematics, plant diversity, and island biology.


You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
