Bing Professor of Population Studies, Department of Biology, Stanford; Author, The Dominant Animal


In conversation with Moira Gunn, host, NPR's BioTech Nation


Ehrlich has famously sought to discover how humans and other species impact evolution, and how evolution impacts us. He co-founded the field of co-evolution and sounded alarms about the consideration of environment and population growth in creating public policy. Come hear a fascinating discussion on how we are affecting our environment and how we can positively impact our world.
