CSER is delighted to announce that Paul Ehrlich has agreed to speak at the monthly Blavatnik Public Lecture Series.
Title of the lecture: Population, Environment, Extinction and Ethics
Paul R. Ehrlich has been a household name since the publication of his 1968 bestseller, The Population Bomb. He is Bing Professor of Population Studies and Professor of Biological Sciences at Stanford University. Ehrlich is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a recipient of the Crafoord Prize (an explicit substitute for the Nobel Prize in fields of science where the latter is not given), the Blue Planet Prize, and numerous other international honors.
He investigates a wide range of topics in population biology, ecology, evolution, and human ecology and evolution. Much of his current effort is focused on the mechanisms of human cultural evolution and ways of directing that evolution to ameliorate the human predicament.
