The Meaning of Eco: Ecology as a Way of Thinking
Ngā Manu Nature Reserve, Waikanae, Kapiti Coast
WED 14 JUL 3:30 P.M. - 5:00 P.M.
This lecture is the last of 6 in our 2021 Winter Lecture Series. Kath Dickinson is our second Te Apārangi Sponsored Speaker and is a Professor of Botany at Otago University.
Kath has broad knowledge of plants, vertebrates and invertebrates, how they interact with one another, and their associated habitats, and the interactions of humans with nature. She has a particular interest in mountain environments, but is fascinated by other systems too. Kath will speak about people’s perceptions of ecology and discuss her ideas that thinking ecologically is a mindset that involves knowledge of our place in the world, what happens around us and our connections with all living organisms.
