Dr. Mosheh Wolf, University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of BioEngineering, will present a seminar, Friday, March 18 at 2:30 p.m. in Room 1000 SEO, entitled "Highways and Ecology: Impacts of Highways on Native Species"
Roads are arguably one of the most important parts of the infrastructure of the industrialized society all levels. However, the roads, and the traffic which travels them, have deleterious effects on organisms in their vicinity. Furthermore, while the purpose of roads is to connect people, they often have the opposite effect on the many other species that share our planet. By intersecting the landscape, roads fragment and isolate many populations. Conversely, they are also often movement corridors for many species, both native and invasive. I will explore some of the many effects that our roads and highways have on native species, with a focus on the landscape-level effects.
Dr. Mosheh Wolf received his Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003. His interests include spatial ecology in human-modified and urban landscapes, the interface between the native species and the anthropogenic environs, and sustainability in human-controlled landscape.
