RESCHEDULED - Lecture: Evolution of the Earth's Atmosphere as Revealed by Plant Fossil Records - IBIOLI Activity Series 2018/19

This lecture event has been RESCHEDULED: Human carbon use during the next century will lead to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations (pCO2) that have been unprecedented for the past 50-100+ million years according to fossil plant-based CO2 estimates. The paleobotanical record of plants offers key insights into vegetation responses to past global change, including suitable analogs for Earth's climatic future.
