Noted Ecologist to Preview 2010 Nobel Conference... On Friday, May 14, ecologist G. David Tilman will preview this fall’s Nobel Conference 46, “Making Food Good,” with his lecture “Can We Feed the World and Save the Earth?” The lecture is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium, Nobel Hall of Science. Tilman, Regent’s Professor and McKnight Presidential Chair in Ecology at the University of Minnesota and a Guggenheim Fellow, currently directs the Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve Long-Term Ecological Research Station. In 2000 he was named the Most Highly Cited Environmental Scientist of the Decade by Essential Science Indicators, and in 2008 he was awarded the International Prize for Biology. He is perhaps best known for his work on the role of resource competition in community structure and on the role of biodiversity in ecosystem functioning. Tilman’s most recent research on food, energy, and the environment takes a 50-year quantitative global look into the future of food and energy and proposes solutions to the problems that accelerating global food and energy demand would create. He will examine ways to help poorer nations adopt high-yielding agricultural practices and the environmental and health benefits of dietary shifts to highly environmentally efficient diets.
