About this Event

Host Organization: Carleton University Alumni Association

Dr. Lenore Fahrig received the 2018 Miroslaw Romanowski Medal from the Royal Society of Canada.

Fahrig's work has created paradigm shifts in research on habitat connectivity and fragmentation, road ecology and sustainable agriculture. She is a trailblazer in these fields, with one of the highest citation rates in ecology, including the world's most-cited paper on habitat fragmentation. She is a highly influential and internationally renowned researcher in conservation ecology and her contributions have helped define the field of landscape ecology.

Established in 1994, the Miroslaw Romanowski Medal is awarded annually for environmental research. The award recognizes contributions to the resolution of scientific aspects of environmental problems or important improvements to the quality of an ecosystem in all aspects - terrestrial, atmospheric and aqueous - brought about by scientific means.

This lecture is part of the annual lecture series for Dr. Fahrig as the 2018 Romanowski Medal Recipient.
