Why Biodiversity Matters: Science and Society in Brazil
As a part of Harvard Worldwide Week 2021, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies Brazil Office, Museum of Comparative Zoology and Department of Evolutionary and Organismic Biology kicked off a three-part series of discussions on "Why Biodiversity Matters". This series aims to showcase the breadth of cutting-edge research related to biodiversity in Brazil being conducted by Harvard researchers and Brazilian colleagues as well as to promote broader discussions around the importance of studying and preserving biodiversity from scientific and societal perspectives. Part 2, "Why Biodiversity Matters: Science and Society in Brazil", will focus on how understanding Biodiversity can contribute to our ability to use bioinspired designs offering climate change solutions, such as more efficient energy use, harnessing of ecosystem services, management of potential insect pests and invasive species, and identification of zoonotic reserviors that potentially harbor disease.

With: Scott Edwards (OEB/MCZ), Naomi Pierce (OEB/MCZ), Wendy Valencia (OEB), Bruno de Medeiros (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute), Weber Amaral (USP) and Marcia Castro (HSPH)

Stay tuned for part 3, "Biodiversity Matters: Plants and Animals Across Natural Systems in Brazil", which is being planned for October 29th.
