Professor Daniel Schindler will deliver a lecture titled “The Challenges of Predicting Ecosystem Responses to Climate Change” as part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems Distinguished Lecturer Series on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at The University of Montana.

The event will be held at 7 p.m. in Interdisciplinary Science Building Room 110. Light refreshments will be served before the event, which is free and open to the public.

Schindler is the Harriet Bullitt Endowed Chair in Conservation at the University of Washington, where he has been a faculty member since 1997. His research explores the causes and consequences of aquatic ecosystem dynamics.

Schindler studies climate impacts, fisheries as large-scale drivers of ecosystem organization and the interdependencies of terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems. As one of the lead investigators of the UW Alaska Salmon Program, most of his research focuses on salmon-producing watersheds in Alaska.

Schindler received the Distinguished Research Award from the College of Ocean and Fishery Sciences at UW. He serves on the editorial boards of Ecology, Ecological Monographs and Ecosystems.

UM’s Institute on Ecosystems Distinguished Lecturer Series provides opportunities for faculty and students to connect with the brightest, most interesting scholars in environmental disciplines.

Approved by the Montana Board of Regents in November 2011, the Institute on Ecosystems is a community of 200 scholars across the Montana University System with the goal of advancing integrated discovery, education and engagement in the environmental and ecosystem sciences. The institute, co-located at UM and Montana State University, is supported by a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.
