After Water: Invasive species and climate change a double threat for the Great Lakes
We’ve been talking a lot about the risk that climate change poses to the infrastructure and environment of the Great Lakes region. But there’s an even more immediate threat-invasive species. And when you combine the two, you’re looking at some major issues for the region’s ecosystems. Joining us to talk about those threats are Dr. Phil Willink, Senior Research Biologist at the Shedd Aquarium, and Jessica Hellmann, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame.
