      EVENT DETAILS
      Science Cafe at Tucson Botanical Gardens – 'The New Deforestation Threat: Amazonian Rainforests and the Global Environment'

      Presenter: Dr. Scott Saleska, Professor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

      About the talk: Tropical deforestation reached a crisis in the Amazon in 2019, and the latest science shows how this will likely have impacts not only in South America but around the world. This is because these vast forests, often called the "lungs of the planet," are both sinks for carbon and geysers of water, and are connected through the atmosphere, to the pulse of the planet's climate and environment. 

      About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the University of Arizona College of Science, bring the community together with University of Arizona scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You'll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have five separate cafe series at five different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions.Audience:
