Adapting to Invasives 
During the entire time humans have existed on this planet, people have been central to landscape changes in most places — from small individual gestures to large collective efforts. Through technical ingenuity, need, and greed, humans have become primary global shapers of ecosystem form, process, and composition, on a par with the forces of climate and geology. Humans have now converted 30% of the planet to agriculture, urban, and suburban uses, another 1/3 could be converted in the next 100 years. Ecosystem conversion is the driving force in the loss of biodiversity, particularly at the local scale. Cumulatively this can mean extinction of species at the global scale. Learn more about this on April 23, 2015 at the BCSLA Landscape Cafe.  Click here for more information and to register.
