Linda Hall Library Livestream | The Sixth (Modern) Mass Extinction: A Geologic Perspective
April 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The earth is experiencing a biodiversity crisis that could rival past mass extinctions. What lessons does the fossil record offer for how ecosystems will respond to massive loss of biodiversity? This presentation will take a look at how the geologic record provides many examples of climate warming, ocean acidification and sea-level change that can help inform projections of future environmental conditions. This event is free but please register to receive a Zoom link. The event will also be streamed live on the Library’s Facebook page.
