Hunnewell Bldg Lecture Hall, 125 Arborway, Boston

Arnold Arboretum Director's Lecture Series

Camille Parmesan, University of Texas at Austin, and Chair in the Public Understanding of Oceans and Human Health, National Marine Aquarium, University of Plymouth, UK, will discuss "Responses to Anthropogenic Climate Change: Predicting the Future Requires Knowing the Past."

Each winter, Director William (Ned) Friedman and the Arnold Arboretum present the Director’s Lecture Series, featuring nationally recognized experts addressing an array of topics related to Earth’s biodiversity and evolutionary history, the environment, conservation biology, and key social issues associated with current science. Lectures take place in the Hunnewell Building Lecture Hall. Parking will be available along the Arborway and in front of the Hunnewell Building on lecture nights.

Camille Parmesan’s work focuses on the impacts of climate change on wildlife, from field studies of American and European butterflies to synthetic analyses of global impacts on a broad range of species on land and in the oceans. She has participated in US and international assessments of climate change impacts and provided formal testimonies for the US House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, and the Texas Senate Natural Resources Committee. Camille has served as a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which in 2007 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
