Video-lecture, Biology

Description: The appearance of life put the Earth under new management, and life has continuously remodeled the atmosphere, oceans and land masses. The Earths climate and related life support systems are changing today in ways and at rates that are markedly different from those experienced in recorded human history. 21st century biology must provide the knowledge needed to adapt to these changes, and to recognize possible tipping points well in advance of the onset of environmental degradation, economic hardship, or pandemic disease. The future demands a trans- disciplinary approach to research and education that reaches beyond the science of traditional disciplines to prepare a new generation of scientists and educators to communicate science as a precise, predictive and reliable way of understanding life and adapting to a changing world.
