|Andrew Millington presents ESSP spring colloquium|
Andrew Millington, professor of geography at Texas A&M University, will present "Deforestation in South America: The Influence of Coca Cultivation and Antinarcotics Policies on Forest Fragmentation and Deforestation Rates" at 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, 210 Clifford Hall Auditorium. Refreshments will be served one-half hour prior to the presentation.
Dr. Millington's research focuses on the impacts of human and institutional agents on spatio-temporal patterns of land use and land cover change, and the impacts of land use and land cover change on biological phenomena. He uses hybrid methodologies from GIScience, environmental science, ecology and social science to reseach these phenomena.
The presentation is part of the UND Earth System Science and Policy spring 2009 colloquium series. For more information contact Michael Hill at 777-6071, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
