SFU President's Faculty Lecture
Dr. Arne Mooers, Biological Sciences
What to let go: Making hard choices in the age of extinction
We may soon have to choose which bits of biodiversity we are willing to live without, and which bits we are willing to pay to keep around. Science should be able to help. We can do as Noah is said to have done, and preserve as wide a variety of biodiversity as possible, using the Tree of Life to help make our choices. I will explain this philosophy and how its goals might be achieved practically, and introduce you to some of the whacky animals that are top candidates for extra attention.
