SMP 10/8/11 | Ecological Complexity and Pest Control | Speaker: John Vandermeer

Saturday, October 8, 2011
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: John Vandermeer, Asa Gray Distinguished University & Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (UM EEB)

This talk will explain how new understanding of ecosystem dynamics can aid in understanding how agricultural systems can be organized so as to better control potential pest species. The example of coffee production in southern Mexico will be used as a running example.
