Carnivores, roads and plants: how unexpected relationships change ecosystems – MacNamara Field Naturalists Presentation

November 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

7:30 pm Zoom Meeting (TBD)

Our Presenter:

Alberto Suarez-Esteban is a biologist by training and a passionate naturalist. He has studied a variety of topics and taxa (plants, birds, mammals), always with a focus on conservation and sustainability.

The Presentation:

Ecosystems are very much like a car’s engine: they have multiple components (species, for example) that are structured in a particular way and provide functions. When we humans build roads, we do not only affect certain species, but also the structure and the functions of the ecosystem. All these changes combined can lead to a much different landscape. Join Alberto Suarez-Esteban on a trip to southern Spain to unravel the unexpected consequences of roads in a Mediterranean ecosystem.

Biography:

Alberto Suarez-Esteban is a biologist by training and a passionate naturalist. He loves teaching “Ecosystem and Environmental Change” at Carleton University, and he is developing an organic market garden called Nature’s Apprentice Farm in Pakenham. Alberto completed his PhD in Spain and moved to the Yukon shortly after, where he worked as a researcher and instructor for 4 years. He has studied a variety of topics and taxa (plants, birds, mammals), always with a focus on conservation and sustainability.
