Michael Dietze to Discuss New Book, “Ecological Forecasting,” at Pardee Center Seminar


The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future invites you to attend its upcoming seminar with Prof. Michael Dietze, an associate professor in the Department of Earth & Environment, where he will discuss his new book, “Ecological Forecasting” from Princeton University Press. The seminar will be held at the Pardee Center at 67 Bay State Road on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 12:00 – 1:30 pm (lunch will be provided beginning at 11:30 am).

“Ecological Forecasting” presents a new way of doing ecology. Prof. Dietze brings together the concepts and tools needed to make ecology a more predictive science, and to make ecologists more able to respond to environmental challenges. He aims to establish a closer connection between data and models to help us project our current understanding of ecological processes into new places and times.
