Taylor and Alicia in Bahamas this week
National Academies meeting on Ecosystems and Human Health
- By Taylor H Ricketts
This week Taylor and Alicia participated in a followup meeting to a National Academies ‘Keck Futures’ conference on ecosystem services. A sub-group that focused on ecosystem services and human health received a follow-up grant to continue working together. We managed to find a way to meet in the Bahamas to do so! At the meeting we developed a framework for broad collaboration linking ecosystem change to changes in health outcomes, outlined a paper or two, and set aside time to explore Eleuthera Island.
