Biodiversity, Planetary Health & Disease Ecology with Dr. Tom Gillespie

April 22, 2020

Human and planetary health are linked to biodiversity in ways that are not always clear or appreciated by the public. Even as more species are disappearing in the wild and becoming threatened with extinction, others are being introduced to new environments. This raises questions of how such environmental changes will impact our everyday life. I speak with special guest, Dr. Tom Gillespie, about how industrial agriculture impacts natural ecosystems, contributing to biodiversity loss and increases opportunities for disease transmission between wildlife and humans.
