Join Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York for a live taping of the podcast Big Biology, and discover how diverse ecosystems affect disease risk for people, wildlife, and plants.
Having a diversity of plants and animals around us makes the world a richer, more interesting place. But can diversity also be good for our health?
Hosts Marty Martin and Art Woods will conduct a live conversation with Drs. Felicia Keesing and Rick Ostfeld. Among the questions they will explore: Why does biodiversity influence disease transmission? And how can we harness these effects to protect human health and advance conservation goals?
