    Speaker: Susannah Lermer, PhD

    Research Ecologist

    Dr. Susannah Lermer’s research highlights strategies and tools for reconciling urban development with conservation. She explores the links between human management of the urban forest (e.g. yards, neighborhood parks and open space) and the health and success of native wildlife populations, and how these impacts subsequently feedback to influence people due to the role of biodiversity in delivering ecosystem services.

    Dr. Lermer seeks opportunities to explain scientific findings to varying audiences while trying to facilitate connections between the publics’ personal lives and the urban ecosystem.
