Hotspot in a Hotspot: Biodiversity in the Bay Area

February 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| Free

Join POST in welcoming author Mary Ellen Hannibal to discuss why the Bay Area is a biodiversity hotspot!
Mountains have risen, continents have moved, rivers have hurtled to the ocean, and over millions of years, the Bay Area has taken shape. Cyclical interactions over deep time give rise to the Bay Area’s great diversity of life forms and support them today. In this online talk, author Mary Ellen Hannibal will discuss the official hotspot designation with a focus on physical features that make our home both beautiful and fecund. She will highlight some native species with special stories to tell, emphasizing the interconnectedness of life across time and the role of large landscape conservation in sustaining ancient relationships.
