Join Us for the Next Cornell Lab of Ornithology Seminar

 

Monday, October 3, 2016 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM

 

Coffee, Communities, and Conservation: How your cup can make a difference

 

Speaker: Dr. Amanda Rodewald, Garvin Professor of Ornithology and Director of Conservation Science, Cornell Lab of Ornithology

 

In this talk, Rodewald will discuss how shade-coffee and other agroforestry practices can support bird conservation, healthy ecosystems, and human communities in Latin America.

 

When coffee is grown under trees, the system can provide a variety of products (e.g., coffee, fruits, firewood, lumber, and medicines), while at the same time maintain forest cover, support biodiversity, and reduce erosion and chemical use compared to other intensive agricultural systems. Neotropical Migratory birds rely heavily upon shade-coffee farms.
