Ecological Society of America explores global warming at its 95th Annual Meeting
Date:6/8/2010

Registration is now open to the press for the Ecological Society of America's (ESA) 95th Annual Meeting which will be held August 1-6, 2010 in Pittsburgh. The meeting, which has the theme "Global Warming: The legacy of our past, the challenge for our future," draws a critical combination of more than 3,000 scientists, policy makers and concerned citizens to explore the causes and consequences of global warming and to discuss the ways in which climate change permeates many areas of environmental concern, such as endangered species, food security and freshwater resources.

In the Opening Plenary "Environmental disasters in the US: exploring our reactive mode," a panel of experts will discuss large scale environmental disasterssuch as the Deep Horizon disaster, Hurricane Katrina and Asian carp invasionand explore with audience input the ways in which society assesses risk, and why we so often find ourselves reacting instead of proactively taking steps to minimize or avoid grave outcomes. The Opening Plenary will take place Sunday, August 1 from 5:00-6:30pm at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Steve Runningboard member on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), professor at the University of Montana and team member for NASA's Earth Observing Systemwill give the scientific plenary lecture on climate change and ecology and his views on the outlook for global policies after the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. The lecture will be held on Monday, August 2 at 9:00-10:00am in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Both the Opening Plenary and the Scientific Plenary are free and open to the public.

The scientific program will feature 24 symposia, 179 oral sessions, 91 poster sessions and a host of special sessions, events and workshops. Numerous field trips will take participants from the rivers and mountains of eastern Pennsylvania to the nearby neighborhoods of inner city Pittsburgh. These tr
