1.February Speaker Series: “Rewilding: Transcending the Human/Nature Divide.” Susie O’Keeffe of Montville will speak about the rewilding movement, or the restoration of self-regulating land communities. Her talk will briefly introduce six areas of ecological research—extinction dynamics, island biogeography, metapopulation theory, natural disturbance ecology, top-down regulation by large carnivores, and landscape-scale ecological restoration. The presentation will then touch on how history, culture and language shape our experience of wilderness and wildness. Susie is a Research Associate at the College of the Atlantic.
