How have humans transformed the planet in the past millennia, and how has this process accelerated in the recent past? How is the human impact on the world’s oceans different from the devastation of terrestrial ecosystems? And can we still change the course we are on?
World-renowned marine and fisheries biologist Daniel Pauly will address these questions in this public lecture. Pauly, described as “The Ocean’s Whistleblower” by his biographer David Gremillet, is one of the world's leading experts on oceanic ecosystems. His work has been awarded with more than 30 international prizes, including the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement, and he has been named one of the Scientific American 50.
