By Shawn Hutchinson

Audrey Joslin, assistant professor of geography, will give a public lecture at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6, in 328 Waters Hall.

Joslin will discuss how a market-based conservation arrangement to protect water resources and biodiversity has influenced rural land uses in the Ecuadorian Andes. While this model is widely used as an example of success to justify its replication throughout Latin America, she explains how interpretations of conservation success for this kind of approach can vary greatly.

This talk is being presented for students participating in the capstone course of the natural resources and environmental science secondary major and is open to the general public as part of the NRES Seminar Series. Undergraduate students interested in natural resources, environmental science and sustainability issues are especially encouraged to attend.

The natural resources and environmental science secondary major and its seminar series are generously supported by the Office of the Provost, College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences, and biological and agricultural engineering department.
