Nearly a century ago, Aldo Leopold observed that wolves are apex predators whose presence touches everything in a food web. For the past decade, Dr. Eisenberg has conducted research on public and private lands throughout the West on the relationships between wolves, deer and elk, and aspen trees. She will share her findings on how wolves create healthier ecosystems.
Cristina Eisenberg is a post doctoral fellow at Oregon State University, where she conducts research on how wolves and fire affect ecosystems throughout the West and teaches ecological restoration and public policy. She has written two books, The Wolf's Tooth: Keystone Predators, Trophic Cascades and Biodiversity, and The Carnivore Way: Conserving America's Predators, which is forthcoming in summer 2014.
Copies of Dr. Eisenberg's book The Wolf's Tooth: Keystone Predators, Trophic Cascades and Biodiversity will be available for purchase at a book signing after the presentation.
Event co-hosted by: The Arboretum at Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project
