A leading scholar in the study of patterns of species diversity, Rodolfo Dirzo has written broadly about the decline of animal life ("defaunation"), and how this affects ecosystem processes/services. He is especially well versed in the study of species interactions in tropical ecosystems in Latin America and Africa.

After his talk, questions will be moderated by Jorge SoberĂ³n, senior scientist at the KU Biodiversity Institute and Distinguished Professor in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.
