'Avoiding Global Collapse'
Professor Ehrlich will discuss the ongoing legacy of Allan Wilson in establishing humanity’s place in the natural world, and in the growing importance of understanding cultural evolution in influencing how Homo sapiens are changing that world and its own life-support systems. He will explain how the two kinds of evolution have interacted to create the human predicament - the imminent threat of a collapse of civilization - then discuss the evolutionary steps necessary to avoid that dénouement.

An amazing opportunity to hear a world famous biologist's views on the future of the planet. PDF attached - please circulate.

Porfessor Ehrlich will be touring NZ as a guest of the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution.
