Join EECP faculty member Dr. Alan Covich for a discussion of the profound influence Dr. Frank Golley had on broader conceptions of ecology. Frank was one of the founders of the EECP. Current interest in developing a worldview to enhance Earth stewardship recognizes the importance of a multicultural perspective based on environmental ethics and a global understanding of the value of biodiversity and ecosystem processes. Frank Golley was a champion in developing and implementing ecosystem concepts based on "nature-centered thinking". His environmental ethics-based principles emphasized "connectedness" among people and their environment that included the value of cultural differences in responding to natural and human-driven disturbances.
We are holding this seminar at the Special Collections Library to be able to view some of the archival material Dr. Covich has been using. Currently the Special Collections Library houses more than 100 boxes of archives spanning Dr. Golley's career.
