Dr. Jackson’s research employs tree-rings, fossil rodent-middens, and sediments from lakes and bogs to investigate how past climatic changes and human activities have affected species distributions, biodiversity, and ecosystem properties. His research provides baselines for gauging ongoing and future changes in ecological systems, and delivers case studies that reveal the complex dynamics of ecological response to environmental change and variability. Dr. Jackson’s work has implications for conservation policy, resource management and climate-change adaptation. Link to event & FULL BIO here.
