School of Natural Resources Research Seminar Series

Wealth, race, and wildlife: The impacts of structural inequality on urban wildlife

3:30 pm–4:30 pm
Chris Chizinski,
Urban ecosystems are intrinsically heterogenous, characterized by dynamic biotic and abiotic interactions that are not witnessed in non-urban environments. Dr. Christopher Schell, assistant professor of urban ecology, University of Washington, Sciences and Mathematics Division, will discuss how structural and systemic inequalities, especially economic and racial inequality, shape ecological and evolutionary outcomes of wildlife. In addition, he will discuss how certain species (e.g., coyotes and raccoons) may serve as ecosystem sentinels or bioindicators of environmental health and inequity.
