TSE Careers is glad to welcome Claire De Mazancourt (Station d'écologie théorique et expérimentale) from CNRS who will talk to TSE students on Environmental Economics “Biodiversity loss and sustainability of social-ecological systems”.
ACADEMIC TALK 8 MARCH 2018 - 5PM- AMPHI MB II
Human activities are currently causing a mass extinction and the resulting biodiversity loss is expected to affect ecosystem services, including agricultural production. Natural habitat destruction and fragmentation results in biodiversity loss occurring with a time delay. Such lagged ecological dynamics affect the long-term sustainability of social–ecological systems (SESs) that depend on a range of ecosystem services. I will present the results of a stylized model that couples the dynamics of biodiversity, technology, human demography and compliance with a social norm prescribing sustainable consumption.
