Dr. Thomas E. LovejoyDr. Thomas E. Lovejoy is an innovative and accomplished conservation biologist who in 1980 coined the term “biological diversity.” In 2010 he was elected professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University.

He is senior fellow at the United Nations Foundation in Washington, DC. He served as president of the Heinz Center from 2002 to 2008 and held the Biodiversity Chair until the center closed at the end of 2013.

Before assuming this position, Lovejoy was the World Bank’s chief biodiversity advisor and lead specialist for environment for Latin
America and the Caribbean. Spanning the political spectrum, Lovejoy has served on science and environmental councils under the Reagan,
Bush and Clinton administrations.

At the core of these many influential positions are Lovejoy’s seminal ideas, which have formed and strengthened the field of conservation biology. In the 1980s, he brought international attention to the world’s tropical rain forests, and in particular the Brazilian Amazon, where he has worked since 1965.

Lovejoy also developed the now ubiquitous “debt-for-nature” swap programs and led the Minimum Critical Size of Ecosystems project. He founded the series Nature, the popular long-running program on public television.

Thomas Lovejoy has worked on the interaction between climate change and biodiversity since the mid-1980s. Some of the products are Global Warming and Biological Diversity with Robert L Peters (1992), Climate Change and Biodiversity with Lee Hannah (2005) and Changing the Biosphere with Lee Hannah (submitted).

In his talk, he will describe current impacts on physical and biological nature, and projected impacts including ecosystem failure unless emissions are curbed rapidly and dramatically.

Restoration of ecosystems (forests, grasslands, agro-ecosystems and coastal wetlands) can make an important contribution by sequestering some of the current CO2 in the atmosphere.

Those interested in attending the talk can register by sending an email to biosar@sbc.org.my or call 082-610610 to speak to Mr Ha-Mim Marzuki or Ms Asha Kaushal, before 18 July 2016.
