We humans are the ultimate invasive species, transforming the planet in dramatic and surprising ways. This Friday, I’ll talk with Princeton biologist Shane Campbell-Staton about how we are changing the world’s ecosystems, how we're inextricably connected to the plants and animals around us, and what this tells us about our species.
He’s the host of the PBS series "Human Footprint," about the fragility and resilience of the natural world. Campbell-Staton explores our deep and abiding relationship with dogs, the dramatic impact of corn on our environment, geology’s effect on modern day voting patterns, the influence of war on the evolution of tuskless elephants and many other fascinating stories.
He’s an engaging and charismatic host with insights about life on earth and the critical choices we face as humans.
Be sure to tune in at noon.
