Green Regs and Ham: Coastal Conundrums

April 15, 2019 - 7:45am to 9:00am

Coastal environmental concerns are highly relevant to land locked Alberta, but rarely do we discuss them. Join the ELC and our guest speakers to look beyond Alberta’s borders at the conundrums of crude and coastal communities. Up for discussion – the ecological, jurisdictional and legal challenges that arise in relation to what has become a significant and divisive issue: the export of Alberta’s oil and gas.

Join the ELC, Dr. Stephanie Green and Professor Cameron Jefferies as we dive into the coastal challenges that need to be resolved while enjoying a hearty Green Regs and Ham buffet breakfast.

Buffet Breakfast 7:15 a.m.

Her research focuses on the causes and consequences of biodiversity change in marine and freshwater ecosystems, with the goal of developing science-based tools to inform natural resource management and conservation under global change. Research projects in her group combine a variety of methods—including animal behavioural observation, field and lab experiments, and quantitative modeling—to understand how biological invasion, climate change, habitat modification, and exploitation are altering species interactions and functions within aquatic food webs. Dr. Green completed her PhD at Simon Fraser University, and held a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University and a David H. Smith Conservation Science Fellowship at Oregon State University before joining the University of Alberta.
