Distinguished Lecture Series on Water: Global Change and Freshwaters by Stephen Carpenter  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Changes in climate, land use and cover, nutrient emission and habitat have altered freshwater ecosystems more than any ecosystem type on earth. Phosphorus plays an important role in these changes. Recent changes in global markets for phosphorus raise the possibility of conserving phosphorus with benefits for both agriculture and freshwater quality.

Stephen Russell (Steve) Carpenter is a leader of whole-ecosystem experiments and adaptive ecosystem management focused on freshwaters. Carpenter serves as the Director of the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is the Stephen Alfred Forbes Professor of Zoology. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Carpenter is the 2011 laureate of the Stockholm Water Prize.
