"The Ecology of War"

February 6th 
Gary Machlis
College of Natural Resources

Abstract: The restoration of severely degraded ecosystems represents one of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Among human activities, war is common, almost constant, and far-reaching in its impact on the environment. This seminar presentation introduces the interdisciplinary ecology of warfare, provides a set of historical and contemporary examples from around the world, and explores the research needs and policy implications that emerge from the ecological study of warfare.
