Art and Ecology
Artists are often particularly keen observers and precise recorders of the physical conditions of the natural world. As a result, paintings can be good resources for learning about ecology. Teachers can use this lesson to examine with students the interrelationship of geography, natural resources, and climate and their effects on daily life. It also addresses the roles students can take in caring for the environment. Students will look at paintings that represent cool temperate, warm temperate,

Expansion finance for social impact
Philanthropy has too often remained trapped in the ‘small is beautiful’ world of social innovation – while for-profit-investors have striven to avoid any taint of compromising returns for social impact. A growing set of trailblazers is mobilising significant pools of capital to deploy for social impact. In the process they are reinventing the way that philanthropic and for-profit capital is used for social and environmental benefit.
The Future of Biodiversity: Science and Solution
Andrew Gonzalez, Professor in the Department of Biology, discusses how our understanding of extinction can be used to make estimates of future rates of extinction under various scenarios of environmental change.
