Come hear Dr. Boughton talk about the wildlife on Marco and the wildlife on the Ranchlands of Florida and what they have in common.

As human impacts increase across more than 90% of the world land surface and much of the oceans, the Anthropocene era is upon us and major changes in ecosystem function are occurring and sustainability of ecosystem services are threatened. As these major environmental changes occur most intensely at the wildland-human interface, studying the interface is a way in which we can gain insight into how our practices can be modified and improved to support/maintain multiple ecosystem services. I started my research work in almost pristine environments, which should be protected at all costs, but I also believe we can do so much more to improve our semi-modified habitats that provide food for millions of people and habitat for billions of organisms.
