Lecture: Avian Malaria in a Changing World
Thursday | March 20, 2014 | 7:00 pm
Golden Gate Audubon Society | 2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley/Albany, CA 94702
The effects of deforestation and climate change on health are diverse and becoming increasingly apparent. Ravinder Sehgal, who holds a PhD in cell biology from UCSF, presents research on the impact of human-induced change on the prevalence and diversity of avian malaria in birds from the tropics to the Arctic. Research shows that habitat degradation leads to altered patterns of malaria prevalence and disruptions in parasite diversity. Models using a multidisciplinary approach have been developed to help predict how deforestation and climate change will impact the spread of avian diseases.Visit Event Website >>
