PEI Faculty Seminar: “The Basic Biology of Rebuilding a Wilderness – Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique”

 

Robert Pringle, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, presented “The Basic Biology of Rebuilding a Wilderness: Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique,” at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, in Guyot Hall, Room 10.

After nearly being eliminated during Mozambique’s civil war, the large mammals of Gorongosa National Park have rebounded dramatically in the past decade thanks to an innovative government-initiated conservation partnership. But many ecological legacies of the conflict remain. Pringle drew on his years of research in Gorongosa to discuss how the disassembly and reassembly of Gorongosa illuminates the inner workings of ecosystems, the profound importance of ‘megafauna,’ and the resilience of nature.
