Join C2ST and Dr. Silvia Alvarez Clare for our monthly Science and Sandwiches Program! On the first Friday of every month, we sit down with an expert during the lunch hour to chat about life, science, careers, a day on the job, and whatever else you’re interested in learning about them–within reason, anyways.
Dr. Silvia Alvarez Clare is the Director of Global Tree Conservation at The Morton Arboretum. Ecology is the study of the relationships between organisms (in this case, trees) and their physical surroundings. Conservation includes the intentional preservation and protection of something, in this case, planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect of environments and wildlife. Tree ecology studies these aspects in wooded areas, including rainforest, deciduous, evergreen, temperate, and boreal forests. Silvia’s research focuses on using long-term monitoring, experimentation, and conservation-driven methods to better understand how environmental factors, such as changes in climate, soil nutrients, or land use affect plant communities. Register today to find out what’s growing on with Silvia.
At C2ST, we believe that access to experts is important in ensuring that science is for everyone, which is why we want to host these conversations. We encourage you to grab some grub, make yourself comfortable, tune into the conversation, and if you’re up for it, ask a question.
Friday, June 4th from 12:15 – 12:45 pm CT, hosted through Zoom.
You will receive a Zoom link to attend the program the day of the event! We plan on allowing you to ask questions of our expert yourself! You may also use our Q& app to ask live questions during the program or send in your questions in advance! Remember to upvote your favorite questions.
