"THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON WILDFLOWERS AND ANIMALS IN THE COLORADO ROCKY MOUNTAINS"
Dr. David Inouye
Department of Biology
University of Maryland, College Park
Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory
Crested Butte, CO
David has worked at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory for 47 years, and has long-term research projects about the flowering, pollination, and demography of many species of wildflowers, and the bumble bees and hummingbirds that pollinate them. Climate change is affecting these species and their interactions, making this an interesting time to be studying the wildflowers meadows where they occur.

BACKGROUND TO THE LECTURE SERIES
Established in 2000 with the generous support of Dr. William Kaufmann and his wife Virginia '44, the Cornell-Gladstone-Hanlon-Kaufmann (CGHK) lectureship (named to honor family members) is an endowed fund within the College at Oneonta Foundation. The purpose of this lectureship is to bring to the SUNY Oneonta campus international leaders in environmental thought and education to interact with students and faculty on campus, and to present a free public lecture open to the members of the campus and greater community.
