Joel G. Kingsolver, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor of Biology

Our climate is changing, and as a result, plants and animals are changing along with it. Some species are increasing in abundance, shifting their geographic range and seasonal timing, or invading new regions or continents; others are declining or going extinct. Join biologist Joel Kingsolver as he describes the likely winners and losers in a world which is becoming hotter, and where some regions may soon experience novel climates unlike any currently on earth.

TIME: 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
