Talks at UT Austin

In September I did several talks at the University of Texas at Austin thanks to the Texas Tropical Network.

The Texas Tropical Network was inspired by the Bay Area Tropical Forest Network (BATFN), a group I co-founded in 2009 that held about 100 events around the Bay Area over a ten-year period.

Texas Tropical Network recently published three of those talks on its YouTube channel:
