The Ecology of Surprise: Ecology and Environmental Ethics in an Old-Growth Forest with Michael Paul Nelson, PhD, Ruth H. Spaniol Chair of Renewable Resources and Professor of Environmental Philosophy and Ethics, and Lead-PI at the HJ Andrews LTER Program in the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University
Join us for a thought-provoking conversation with Michael Paul Nelson, professor of environmental philosophy and ethics at Oregon State University. He leads the Long Term Ecological Research program at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest.
Located in the Cascades east of Eugene, the Andrews Forest has yielded surprising scientific discoveries that have changed our understanding of forest ecosystems. Nelson will share some of those surprises and present a new way to see science as a novel way into ethics.
