The School of Natural Resources and Environment is hosting a seminar on Monday, March 12, 2018, 1:55PM-2:45PM in 112 Newins-Ziegler Hall. Farah Carrasco-Rueda, Ph.D. candidate and UFBI Fellow, will present “Landuse change and biodiversity: understanding patterns, driving mechanisms and impacts of mitigation.”

Farah’s dissertation work is focused on the effects of landuse cover change on diversity, using bats as study group. She has been working on agricultural landscapes of the Amazon forest of Peru, testing the importance of riparian forest strips in diversity conservation, describing the impact of two production activities and trying to understand the driving mechanisms behind the patterns observed.
