ECU to hold climate change symposium

ECU holding climate change symposium

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
A two day symposium on climate change here in the southeast is taking place Friday and Saturday at East Carolina.

The event is examining how the area is being impacted by the rising ocean levels and other changing climate factors, including crops and livestock.
    
At least a dozen scientists will be presenting, including a Stanford professor and Nobel Prize winner.

"A variety of activities that we like to pursue take place in natural systems so these are all changing,” said Jeff McKinnon, Chair of Biology at ECU. “They are all changing directly with the climate warming as time goes on, but beyond that is impacting the organisms that live here and the services they provide to us."

All are welcome to attend the free, public lectures.

A full schedule and registration information is located online at www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/biology/ncbiodiversity/index.cfm.
