Climate is changing Maine ecosystems: Implications for land and water conservation – George Jacobson, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Ecology and Climate Change, University of Maine

Global changes in climate and the biosphere during the Quaternary Ice Ages of the past 2.6 million years provide important clues about our modern world and its future. George will discuss how long-term climate dynamics offer a framework for decisions related to conservation planning from local to global scales.

Since his arrival in Maine in 1979, Dr. Jacobson has been a member of the Climate Change Institute, and was Director of the Institute for nearly a decade. His scientific research has focused on forest responses to climate changes during the past 60,000 years. He has served as a Board member and chair of both the Maine Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the Forest Society of Maine. He was an external advisor on climate to the European Science Foundation, and the Finnish Academy of Sciences. From 2008 to 2014, he had the honorary designation of Maine State Climatologist.

This program is sponsored by the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition. For more information visit http://belfastbaywatershed.org/
