The Himalaya: Global Change in the Land of Primulas and Rhododendrons
September 29, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Eastern Himalaya—land of Gods, of ancient mountain kingdoms, of icy peaks and alpine meadows—is like no other place on Earth. The life and landscapes of the region are as diverse, spectacular and fragile as the mountains themselves. Even today, these mountains hold many mysteries: unnamed species, primeval cultures and the promise of magical cures to heal all of humanity. But development superimposed on global change will have an incalculable impact on this area. Dr. Kamal Bawa will discuss the role and limitations of science in addressing the pressing issues arising out of interaction between nature and society in the Himalaya, and suggest ways to move forward in resolving critical issues.
