Climate, People, and the Environment Program Seminar Series - Dr. Amy Trowbridge; Assistant Professor, Entomology Depart

Small Molecules, Big Impacts: Understanding How Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Mediate Interactions Between Forests, Insects, and the Atmosphere.

Event Details

Tuesday, November 12, 2019
3:30-4:30 p.m.
Plant volatile organic compounds can play critical roles in determining atmospheric processes and mediating multi-species interactions. In turn, these emissions are in large part controlled by both climate and biotic pressures, including insects and pathogens. In this talk, I will discuss ways in which we are addressing these complex feedbacks including the consequences for ozone formation and plant-insect interaction.
