Open lecture 4. March at 1400: “The Co-Evolution of Life and Earth ” by the Geobiologist Bjarte Hannisdal

This lecture will explore how the evolution of life on Earth is intertwined with the history of our planet, including oceans, atmosphere, soils, and landscapes. Biological species adapt to their environment, but also actively shape their environment, sometimes with global consequences. From the inner workings of our cells, to the resources that sustain our lives, this deep history has implications for how we relate to our surroundings. Bjarte Hannisdal is a researcher at the Department of Earth Science and the Centre for Geobiology, University of Bergen.In large auditorium. Welcome

Urban Ecology is a subset of the science of Biology that is called Ecology. In this respect Urban Ecology is different from Landscape Ecology because the latter incorporates socioeconomic and cultural perspectives.

Two-thirds of the endangered species in a relatively sparsely populated country, Norway, live in connection with man-made structures and urbanized land. The focus of the lecture will be aspects og Urban Ecology relevant to urban developers and architects, not only what is necessary to know but also those perspectives that can inspire and perhaps fascinate. This lecture is aimed at diploma students, but open and of interest to all students at BAS. At 1200 In Large Auditorium. Welcome!
